This session will discuss concerns employers routinely struggle with and provide practical guidance on properly classifying positions, overtime, preliminary, postliminary and remote work, travel time, breaks and meal periods, deductions from wages, piece rates, and commissions, bonuses and incentive compensation, as well as timekeeping practices and record keeping obligations.
