Lawsuits alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act are one of the fastest growing types of employee lawsuits. The judgments and settlements in these lawsuits have been massive, with several totaling over $10 million.
At the same time, state and local laws have expanded employee rights to overtime and have implemented mandatory rest and meal periods and predictive work scheduling requirements.
This course teaches employees their specific responsibilities for complying with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.
Unlike most courses on this topic, the training also addresses how to comply with state and local wage and hour laws, which often are much more expansive than the federal FLSA.
Clear Law Institute CEO, Michael Johnson, published an article on Why Wage and Hour Training for Managers is Essential. You can read the article here.
The course addresses the following topics:
Meal and Rest Breaks and Scheduling Laws
Employer Policies, Reporting, and Retaliation
