It is expected that the FLSA will go through some massive changes, and this video will help prepare you for some of those possible changes by examining the top five mistakes law firm administrators and HR professionals make, ways to avoid these problems and prudent measures to take to correct past errors. Learn how to conduct a self-audit of internal practices to avoid U.S. Department of Labor investigations or collective action litigation and examine how the law impacts your existing policies and discuss additional handbook provisions that are required.
