[Webinar] Wage and Hour in the Energy Industry – New Administration, New Rules - May 4th, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm CT



May 4th, 2021
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM CT

While the focus of the Department of Labor ebbs and flows based on the administration, the DOL remains committed to enforcing the Fair Labor Standards Act. Now that we know that Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh is in place, we can only expect the DOL to continue to intensify its scrutiny of employers in many industries – including the energy industry. And even where the DOL cedes the field, various state agencies will step in to fill the void. Indeed, even the most seasoned human resources, legal and payroll professionals can miss nuances in the FLSA regulations. Lack of compliance can be costly.

Join us for a webinar on May 4 that is focused on the particular wage and hour issues that affect energy-sector employers. We will identify wage-and-hour problems that are common in the energy industry:

  • Paying for scheduled time instead of actual time;
  • Failing to properly pay for travel time; and
  • Mischaracterization of per diem pay.

For each issue, we offer real-world solutions to help energy-sector employers avoid DOL enforcement action and expensive lawsuits.

1.0 hours CLE credit is pending in Texas, Colorado, Ohio, California, New York and Florida.
