Speaker, Strafford Webinar, "Wage Theft State Reform and Legislative Trends: New Causes of Action for Employees, Employer Penalties"
April 21, 2020 | 1:00 PM - April 21, 2020 | 2:30 PM EST
This CLE webinar will advise employment counsel on the growing state trend of wage theft prevention statutes. The panel will discuss issues that may arise for employers who violate those laws.
Wage theft is so commonplace that it is estimated that employers are keeping billions of dollars each year that rightfully belongs to their employees.
While the FLSA sets standards for the wages and pay for many employees, states have been instituting laws that provide additional penalties and protections when an employer fails to pay either overtime or other unpaid wages.
Listen as our panel of experienced practitioners discusses state implementation of wage theft law and the requirements and restrictions of these statutes. The panel will guide counsel on structuring policies and training management to comply with these laws and avoid retaliation claims.
- Recently enacted state wage theft prevention laws
- Common requirements under these laws, such as:
- Notice requirements
- Remedies available to aggrieved individuals
- State penalties
- Ways employers can minimize their exposure under these laws
The panel will review these and other relevant topics:
- What are wage theft statutes?
- What exposure do employers have under these statutes?
- How can employers minimize their exposure under these statutes?
