Looming Liabilities - Out of Sight Work

Printer-friendly version
Location:EANJ Training Room
Sponsored by:EANJ

Both the Fair Labor Standards Act and the NJ Wage and Hour law require employees receive compensation for time worked.  But there are certain periods of time when you may not consider your employees to be working - but the Department of Labor does.  Do your employees perform work from home in the evening or on the weekends?  Do they use their smart-phone or other mobile devices to respond to emails after hours?  Do they perform work while on a leave?  This two-hour session will help you limit potential wage-hour claims, understand the implications of working while on a leave and provide some options to gain control over "out of sight" liability.
