  • Meal and rest period claims by on-call employees
  • The problem with rounding
  • Challenges to the Department of Labor’s minimum salary requirements
  • How bonuses affect the regular rate when calculating overtime
  • Exemptions in the mortgage industry
  • Retaliation under the FLSA
  • Update on “Ban the Box” legislation
  • Department of Justice’s position on class action waivers
  • Work permits in wage and hour claims
  • Allowing employees to work from home as a reasonable accommodation for disabilities
  • Attendance problems in disability claims
  • Stereotyping and perception in discrimination claims
  • DFEH’s new workplace harassment guide
  • New forms regarding domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking
  • Update on travel ban
  • And much more.
