APPLETON, Wis.– The Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce will welcome Corey Walton, Community Outreach and Resource Planning Specialist, from the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, as the presenter at its upcoming June Public Policy Luncheon. The presentation, “Stay of out trouble – know your wage and hour rules,” will provide attendees with a refresher on the basics of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, including minimum wage, overtime, recordkeeping and child labor. ‘Hot-button’ issues such as how to spot red flags and best practices for achieving and maintaining compliance with federal wage and hour laws will also be covered. For many business owners and managers, deciphering all of the laws and regulations that apply to their business can be challenging, and knowing where to access current and accurate information can be equally as challenging. In order to ease the frustration, Walton’s presentation will also cover the following topics: What are the most common wage and hour violations? In what areas of wage and hour laws have employers expressed the most uncertainty? When must break time be paid? When should training time be paid? Which employees are exempt from overtime? How late can minors work? Registration is open for this upcoming Public Policy Luncheon, Stay out of trouble – know your wage & hour rules, at foxcitieschamber.com. The event will be held on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at The Fox Club at Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Stadium in Appleton. Individual tickets are $20 each for Fox Cities Chamber members or $30 each for general admission. To register for the event, visit foxcitieschamber.com or call (920) 734-7101.
