Wage & Hour Training: Pays for Itself by Preventing Costly Violations
In 2011, the Department of Labor's (DOL) Wage and Hour Division recovered more than $130 million in back wages and over $4 million in civil monetary penalties related to wage violations, and enforcement efforts are increasing. The DOL has now started referring Wage & Hour cases directly to the ABA (American Bar Association), which increases litigation potential. Workplace Answers helps protect our clients from this fate by providing wage and hour training courses covering key wage and hour laws that can lead to large claims if not properly handled.
Thorough, Specialized Wage & Hour Training for Employees and Supervisors
Wage and Hour law contains some of the most complex regulations that HR has to deal with. Every state has a variety of specific wage & hour policies concerning the labor act law, prevailing wage and others; varying even by type, industry and/or sector of employer. Workplace Answers’ Wage and Hour training helps employees and supervisors understand their responsibilities under federal wage and hour laws by focusing on the top 7 high-litigation-risk areas. Our U.S. Wage and Hour Law training for Supervisors course is appropriate for all supervisors and covers federal law, including Labor Act law and prevailing wage.
