Wage and Hour issues continue to plague even the savviest employers

Navigating through a multitude of often conflicting legal requirements is very tricky, and can lead to unanticipated financial liability for an employer.

On April 14, 2015, join other employers at this this half-day seminar, sponsored by the Sacramento Employer Advisory Council (SEAC).  There will be a panel of leading experts will address compliance issues, the latest legal developments and common mistakes in the area of wage and hour law, including:

– The basics of wage and hour compliance.
– New legislation and case development.
– Practical steps for compliance.
– Common mistakes employers make.
– Enforcement trends.
