Presentation Description

Formerly known as the Wednesday In The Park, the new “My GMA SHRM Toolbox” sessions are geared to provide HR professionals at all levels an opportunity to further their learning in the core areas of Human Resources.  The Toolbox session is meant to be a facilitated & interactive discussion to assist in this learning experience.

The most costly HR mistakes are in Wage and Hour Law as the State and Federal Labor Standards Acts are technical and tricky.  Though the letter of the law has not changed in several years, the ground has shifted in how they apply.  Work from home; court re-interpretations; the electronic workplace; reinvigorated federal enforcement on exempt and independent contractor status; and changes in other laws (FMLA, ADA, and the Lilly Ledbetter Act) have re-contoured the surface and create continuing challenges for HR. 

How comfortable that you are administering your programs appropriately?  Be sure to attend this session as it will aid your compliance in wage and hour law.
