Common Wage & Hour Mistakes for California Employers, Including a Discussion of the California Fair Pay Act.
One of the most common pitfalls for California employers is not knowing when and how to pay employees when they are at work — or, when they are not at work. Not surprisingly, this is also one of the most common areas of employee lawsuits. By being aware of the basic rules relating to the employer’s payment obligations and implementing proactive strategies to comply with these laws, employers can dramatically increase their chances of avoiding these burdensome and costly wage and hour lawsuits. The California Fair Act and its 2017 amendments add another layer of compliance difficulty for employers.
In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Jonathan Fraser Light will discuss some of the basic rules relating to when employees do and do not have to be paid as part of their work, including valuable tips employers can use to avoid lawsuits on these issues. Jon will also discuss the significance of the new Fair Pay Act and what employers need to do to stay in compliance.
