  • Avoiding and Mitigating Wage and Hour Claims

Wage and hour lawsuits filed by employees are on the rise, and so are government audits targeting employers for potential wage and hour violations. Given the potential exposure, it is imperative that staffing firms take preventive measures to insulate themselves against wage and hour claims. This workshop will cover the latest trends in wage and hour compliance, tips for avoiding wage and hour liability, common mistakes leading to wage and hour claims, criteria for proper classification of employees, and overtime policies. Qualifies for 1.0 legal CE hour.

  • The Affordable Care Act: Where Are We Now and What Lies Ahead?

With almost a year of Affordable Care Act experience under their belts, staffing firms still face uncertainties as the nation heads into the 2016 election year. In this session, a panel of ACA experts will discuss the prospects for changes in the law and what provisions are unlikely to change regardless of the election outcome. Other topics will include the likely political fallout from the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, which upholds the legality of subsidies in federal health care exchanges, and the latest developments regarding the complex employer information reports that will be due in 2016 for calendar year 2015.
