Employment law discussed
Three aspects of employment law will be discussed in a free half-day seminar Wednesday at the Great Plains Technology Center, 4500 W, Lee.
The Great Plains Chapter of the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), in partnership with the Oklahoma City law firm of Crowe & Dunlevy, will again present an annual employment law seminar. Labor and employment law attorneys from Crowe & Dunlevy volunteer their time to help businesses avoid adverse effects of and ensure compliance with the ever-changing labor laws.
The seminar, "Keeping It Legal: Current Issues in HR," will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at noon. Registration is between 8 and 8:30 a.m. The program is open to the public; business owners, human resource managers and staff are invited to attend. The session will be in Rooms 655/656 of the Economic Development Center.
The seminar will be divided into three parts:
• Fair Labor Standards Act: The goal is to help managers and supervisors understand the basic wage and hour requirements set forth by the act. Participants will learn to evaluate an employee's qualifications for coverage under the act, categorize exempt employees into one of the five white-collar exemption classifications, and learn what happens when an organization is out of compliance.
