Workshop
"Don't Get Hit by the Wave of Wage and Hour Litigation"
Tuesday, July 24, 2012
8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m
Todd Aidman, Shane Muñoz

There has been a proliferation of wage and hour cases filed in the last few years. Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) claims have nearly tripled in the past 10 years. Foster care agencies have been a large target of these lawsuits. Start taking proactive steps to ensure that your agency is in compliance with the FLSA. Explore the law governing employee classifications, proper pay practices, the use of volunteers and independent contractors, and what is considered compensable time. Hear recommendations that you can implement at your agency so it doesn't become the target of a wage and hour lawsuit.
