    Event Synopsis:
    The year 2017 has seen significant changes in wage and hour regulations. This trend is expected to continue this 2018 as various related developments are continuously advanced at the federal, state, and local levels. New legislative efforts mainly revolve on tips, removal of subminimum wage, and the U.S. Court of Appeals’ review of “dual jobs” regulation for tipped workers. Issues on worker classification, joint employment, and scheduling laws will also contribute to the evolution of the wage and overtime landscape.

    This course offers an overview of the latest trends and best compliance practices with respect to the changes in wage and hour regulations. A panel of thought leaders and practitioners brought together by The Knowledge Group will help firms better understand how to apply this trend to their company.

    Key topics include:
    - Wage and Overtime Law: Recent Developments
    - Enforcement Trends
    - Notable Cases
    - Best Compliance Practices
    - 2018 Outlook
