Administering Final Pay: What Are Your Rights and Obligations When the Employment Relationship Ends?

About This Course:
Whether it's an unexpected resignation or an unplanned, immediate termination, the clock is ticking on your employee's final paycheck. If you delay or get it wrong, you could face strict penalties and even a wage and hour class action.

Many plaintiffs’ attorneys have built extremely successful practices that pursue employers for wage and hour violations related to termination pay. Don’t line their pockets by making common gaffes when issuing the final paychecks within your organization.

Join us and get up to speed on your final pay obligations so you can stay in compliance with state and federal wage and hour laws. The best way to avoid costly errors is to have a plan in place for employee resignations and terminations long before an employment relationship ends, and this webinar will teach you how to craft that important plan.
