FLSA: Best Practices, What to do when DOL comes knocking and new rules update
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has issued new regulations pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of which an overview will be provided including potential future controversies. Additionally, given the U.S. Department of Labor’s broad investigative authority and ability to bring enforcement actions against municipalities, it is critical for municipal employers to prepare for, and assert their rights and manage the flow of information during, investigations. This webinar provides a broad overview of new regulations as well as best practices in preparing for and handling an audit through the Wage and Hour Division (WHD).
