    Numerous policy changes and trends concerning wage and hour have made the landscape more complicated and challenging. Recently, the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the US Department of Labor (DOL) released six opinion letters which aimed to address a raft of issues under the Fair Labor and Standards Act (FLSA). Another significant development is the DOL’s termination of the Payroll Audit Independent Program (PAID) creating additional buzz in the litigation landscape. Thus, it is important for practitioners to stay abreast of the recent developments to carefully manage risks and potentials.
    In this LIVE CLE program, wage and hour litigation experts, William J. Anthony (Blank Rome LLP) and Michael D. Thomas (Jackson Lewis P.C.), will guide the audience through the latest regulatory trends and issues in wage and hour litigation. Speakers will also offer insights on how to carefully manage the risks despite the evolving legal climate.
    Key topics include:
    • Wage and Hour Litigation: Regulatory Trends, Developments, and Critical Issues
    • Managing Risks and Potentials
    • Notable Court Rulings
    • Best Compliance Practices and Enforcement Initiatives
    • Outlook
