Third Thursday Webinar - Wage Hour Law and Practice: What to Expect in 2016

March 24, 2016 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EST)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EST)

Please join us for the next edition of Third Thursday – Crowell & Moring’s Labor and Employment Update, a webinar series dedicated to helping our clients stay on top of developing law and emerging compliance issues.

Our topic this month is wage hour law, and the timing is right for an overview. In the past week, the Department of Labor has moved forward with its revised regulations concerning overtime eligibility, sending them for final approval by the Office of Management and Budget. Wage hour cases continue to dominate the federal courts’ dockets, and compliance issues continue to confound both large and small employers. Several impending regulatory initiatives will present additional challenges. For example, the Department of Labor is also addressing the “joint employer” test applicable in a variety of employment law matters. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on another donning and doffing case as well as a case addressing whether service advisers are properly classified as exempt. The California state legislature continues to issue burdensome rules, including a new statute regulating compensation for both piece rate work and rest breaks. Lower courts continue to issue conflicting rules pertaining to the settlement of wage-hour claims, and they will likely continue to differ in their implementation of Supreme Court guidance on a variety of substantive and procedural issues.

Our panelists will discuss these issues as part of a review of the 2016 challenges facing companies seeking to achieve wage hour compliance and control litigation costs.
