Owning or running a business brings many responsibilities, including compliance with federal wage and hour laws. Employers often have questions about some of those responsibilities. When employees are treated in a way that is consistent with our nation’s employment laws, everyone benefits. The US Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division is responsible for the administration and enforcement of a wide range of labor laws that cover virtually all private, non-profit, and government employment.
Join the Wage and Hour Division and other agencies for “Employment Law in a Nutshell”, a program to engage business owners and managers and help them understand how the law applies to their company. Take advantage of this free training and get the info and resources you need to avoid violations.
Several small business resource providers will be in attendance to provide information. These include, but are not limited to, Dept of Labor, SBA, and REI Women’s Business Center.
