Put It In Writing: Two Agreements Every Employer Should Have

If you pay your employees commissions or bonuses, it is imperative that you have written agreements in place detailing how such compensation is computed and paid. Indeed, many states now require these agreements. Absent such agreements, employers face significant potential liability. In this session, Tom will tell you how to avoid this major legal risk by drafting appropriate agreements.  
Speaker: Tom DeVoe

10:45-11:15 a.m.
Employee Wage Claims

In the last couple of years, employers have faced numerous employee lawsuits, including class actions, for violations of state and federal wage laws. As the number of lawsuits continues to increase, employers must ensure they comply fully with these laws.  Mick will address the types of wage payments to employees that are covered under these laws, what is required of employers, the most common mistakes made by employers in administering wage payments to employees, and how to prevent these potentially costly mistakes.
Speaker: Mick Terrell
