Wage and hour issues can be tricky. Sometimes, what seems logical can violate the law or policy, placing proper employee pay in jeopardy and putting organizations at risk.

Wage & Hour Basics teaches non-exempt employees the fundamentals of wage and hour regulations and helps them define what counts as work time. Employees will also learn about breaks, overtime and recordkeeping requirements to ensure they are paid for all time worked.

Proper pay is a right. And, it makes for a happier, more productive workplace. When employees are clear about pay, everyone wins. Advanced version also available.
