Avoiding common wage and hour pitfalls (HR205W - 2 CEU Credits)

With increased audits by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) of employers’ wage and hour practices and the agency’s proposed rule that significantly narrows exempt status, employers must be able to understand and evaluate whether they are in compliance with wage and hour requirements. From misclassification of employees and exempt/non-exempt status to determining what constitutes hours worked and calculating overtime, it is critical employers be well versed in the area of wage and hour compliance under federal and state laws.

Cafeteria plan administration (EB230W - 2 CEU Credits)

Do you offer a Cafeteria Plan? For the vast majority of employers the answer is YES. Pretax premium deductions, pretax medical reimbursement accounts, and pretax dependent care accounts are among the most common forms of cafeteria plans. But many employers fail to appreciate the complexity of the rules and practical issues that go along with a cafeteria plan. For example, did you know that you can’t necessarily drop an employee’s pretax health insurance premium deduction just because they drop their health insurance?

Conflict management and communication for supervisors (LS220 - 3 CEU Credits)

Contractual Risk Transfer: Reduce Your Risks Before a Loss Occurs (RM215W - 1.5 CEU Credits)

Sound corporate governance practices mandate that employers engage in proactive risk mitigation programs. One of the easiest, but most overlooked, ways to reduce the risks you face as you run your business is to make sure that the agreements you have with your customers, clients, and vendors have appropriate indemnification, subrogation, and insurance endorsement language built into them. Managing liability up-front in your business and vendor contracts can reduce your back-end risk exposures.
