The Case for Wage & Hour Training


Employees today are 10 times more likely to file a wage-law class-action lawsuit than one based on discrimination or harassment. Effective wage-and hour training is an organization's best weapon in preventing and defending these suits. It keeps your company in compliance, out of court and in the black.

It is 7:55 a.m. on Friday and you have an urgent message from the general counsel to meet him in the CEO's office. The text message reads: "We have just been served with a wage and hour class action."

Upon entering the CEO's office, she turns to you as the head of HR and asks: "How could this happen here, and what have we been doing to make sure we are complying with wage and hour requirements?"

Please see full alert below for more information.
