Major developments in New Jersey have greatly expanded employer risk regarding wage-hour law compliance. It’s no coincidence that the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), together with the NJ Wage and Hour and Wage Payment laws, account for the majority of labor law violations committed by employers. Three significant developments this year – the crackdown on the use of independent contractors; the increase in the salary level test for exempt employees; and the passage of the so-called “wage theft” bill - require even experienced HR professionals to be up-to-speed with a solid understanding of these complex rules and regulations.
Join EANJ and Genova Burns for this three-part webinar series focusing on what you need to know to stay compliant and avoid costly violations. Register for individual sessions and pay as you go, or take advantage of our discounted pricing when you register and pay in advance (see details below).
