The Department of Labor estimates that nearly 70% of employers are in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). With fines and penalties, small errors in wage and hour administration can quickly snowball into embarrassing and expensive situations for your company. When to pay, who to pay, how much to pay – there are so many questions that employers have to answer. 

This manual focuses on all of these wage-related issues, providing 20 chapters and 2 appendices, covering topics such as: 

Covered and exempt employees
• Exempt vs. non-exempt employees
• Classifying trainees and interns
• Commonly asked questions and answers 

Determining work time
• Defining “hours worked”
• Rest and meal periods
• How to record work time

Overtime compensation
• Computation of overtime compensation
• Exemptions from overtime
• Unauthorized overtime

In addition to in-depth material concerning the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), this guide is complete with state-by-state charts breaking down specific, local regulations. Check out tables detailing:

• State minimum wage amounts
• State payment of wages (including payment of final wages)
• State direct deposit regulations

Wages and Hours — An Employer's Guide was created in collaboration with Squire Patton Boggs, and authored by Jill S. Kirila, Meghan E. Hill, Shennan Harris.


Testimonials

The Employee's Benefits Guide is particularly helpful because the institution strives to provide the best quality benefits to attract and retain valuable employees; and one way to do this is to have a thorough knowledge and understand of how to make these benefits work for the employees.

Libby King, Director of Human Resources, Lincoln Memorial University, Harrogate, Tennessee


Our company does not have an official Human Resources Department. I have what is known as *hands on* H.R. training. Your human resource publications have guided me through many issues such as I-9, FMLA and policy book. The money I spend for the publications each year have more than paid for themselves.

Keith W. Brown, VP Marketing and Human Resources, S&S Food Stores, Lake City, Florida


I have been in Human Resources for over 30 years.  "Performance Management Strategies: Finding Common G.R.O.U.N.D." was one of the best presented, arranged, and informative webinars I have ever participated in.  I wish my whole crew of supervisors and managers could have participated in it.  However, with the information I received and the way it was laid out, I hope that I will be able to mock the presentation for them. You and Jamie did an excellent job in presenting this in a clear, distinctive way that was interesting and was never boring.

hrsimple.com is a must-have not only for HR professionals in the state, but for labor and employee relations professionals, employment lawyers and small business owners. It is comprehensive in scope, addressing the many legal and compliance issues that face employers from recruiting to retirement. Yet, despite the wide range of issues covered, and the complexity of those issues, information is easy to find and comprehend, avoiding much of the legal-speak that can often be difficult to interpret.
