[WATCH] HR Hotline Live: Managing Common Wage & Hour Problems
Wage payment laws can be complex and confusing, frequently leading to inadvertent employer error resulting in liability for back wages, fines and penalties, and even the claimant’s attorney’s fees.
In this Dec. 6, 2023 HR Hotline Live, CBIA’s Diane Mokriski joined Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey attorneys Vincent Farisello and Nick Zaino to discuss common wage and hour mistakes made by employers.
They discussed the U.S. Department of Labor’s definition of “exempt” employees, what this classification means, and why employers cannot “make” an employee salaried exempt, even if the worker requests it.
They also reviewed common traps for the unwary, such as the inappropriate employment of minors, knowing when to pay interns, and how to calculate overtime when a worker has two rates of pay.
