Sacramento State Alumni Center

Sacramento, CA 95819


Please join SEAC's panel of wage and hour experts for this half-day workshop exploring the wage and hour issues faced by employers once they get beyond the big questions of whether an individual is a contractor or employee, and whether the employee is exempt or non-exempt.  Compensation for non-exempt employees presents several questions for employers, such as:

  • How is working time calculated?
  • How is overtime calculated?
  • How is the overtime rate calculated, especially if an employee has two rates of pay?
  • How should missed meal and rest periods be addressed?

And more discrete questions including:

  • How is reporting time and a split shift calculated and paid?
  • How should working time be tracked and what are the risks with time-clock rounding?

Navigating through these issues can be very tricky and result in unanticipated financial liability for employers.  SEAC’s panel of experts will address these questions and more at this informative half-day workshop!

Breakfast will be provided.

Cancellation/No Show: Reservations cancelled less than 72 hrs in advance and/or no show will be billed the entire amount.
