Speakers will define and discuss applicable aspects of pertinent laws including:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state wage/hour laws
  • Federal and state occupational safety and health laws (including OSHA)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and state family/medical leave laws
  • Americans with Disabilities Act/ADAAA and their state equivalents

During this comprehensive session, you'll also learn:

  • How state laws apply and how to keep on top of them
  • Language to include when implementing a written FWA policy
