Wage and hour law can be confusing and full of traps.

The U.S. and Illinois Departments of Labor, as well as plaintiffs’ counsel, are increasingly scrutinizing companies to make sure that their employee pay procedures and policies are compliant with federal, state, and local laws.  Attendees will learn about classifying employees as exempt vs. non-exempt, making valid wage deductions and more to stay compliant and avoid costly litigation.
