About the Program
For the most part, Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA or the Act) lawsuits are grounded in employers' misunderstanding or misapplying the fundamental elements of the Act. Misinformation and bad advice abound. Knowledge and a strong understanding of the Act are the best weapons employers can have in their arsenals to avoid the FLSA pitfalls that ensnare so many. 

Join FordHarrison attorneys Christine D. Hanley and Brooks Anderson for this workshop on FLSA Foundations featuring:

  • Coverage and Employment Relationships
    • Including employees and independent contractors, tests of the employment relationship, trainees and volunteers, the scope of the terms "employee" and "employer."
  • Hours Worked

  • Wages and Overtime
