Labor and Employment Attorney Anthony (Tony) Steffek will present at the Manufacturing First Expo and Conference on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2022 at the Resch Expo Center in Green Bay, WI.
In today’s tight labor market, employers are taking various steps to ensure shifts are covered and that orders are filled on time and with quality. Allowing extra overtime and paying additional compensation (shift differentials, attendance bonuses, etc.) certainly are becoming commonplace. But, did you know that paying additional compensation increases the amount an employer must pay for that extra overtime? Join Tony Steffek for a primer on the rules for overtime compensation under the federal and Wisconsin wage and hour laws and their nuances, including:
- An employee’s “regular rate of pay” under the Fair Labor Standards Act;
- How “time and a half” is not exactly “and a half” when employees work overtime and receive additional compensation; and
- The benefits of self-auditing your payroll history and related tips and tricks for avoiding headaches.
