2020 Wage & Hour Update & COVID Considerations

TIME: 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Join CEA for our new, online Zoomposiums!

Productivity and Compliance in the COVID-19 Era
Wage & Hour Considerations

Just like our onsite symposiums, attendees can log in up to 30 minutes early to network with other California employers, ask live questions, and get a chance to win fun prizes while learning about the newest wage and hour laws in California.

In this era of COVID-19, employers should consider how to enhance productivity and ensure compliance, especially for remote workers. Monitoring employees who work remotely, paying employees properly for temperature checks, reimbursement for mask or other PPE – it’s a whole new world even as the Wage & Hour laws continue to evolve in California. On top of that, new cases have been decided, which means reporting time pay, independent contractor status and other long-standing laws are now old news with a twist.

We’ll cover these hot topics:

  • Minimum wage increases (and when to expect more)
  • Wage and Hour Risks with exempt and nonexempt employees, remote and in-office
  • Overtime, double-time wages, & bonuses
  • Meal and rest breaks
  • When is the company responsible for tools & equipment?
  • Practical considerations for supervising and managing remote employees, including expectations, accountability, and home office expenses
  • Handling changing job duties/pay in a compliant way
  • Revisiting Remote Worker Policies in the COVID era
  • Highlighting "COVID Considerations" to ensure consistent compliance!

And more!
