How to Manage the Sick Employee
Employers struggle with employees who often are late or absent. Excessive tardiness and absenteeism can be a drain on a company financially as well as due to the impact on employee morale. Outright termination may not be the solution due to the intersection of the many laws at play in this area. Through the use of practical, real life scenarios, our panel will lead the way through the pitfalls of this complex area.

Pitfalls Involved in Compensating Employees
This can be one of the most expensive areas where employers can go astray. Improperly classifying employees as independent contractors or as exempt for the wage and hour laws can cost employers double back pay and get them in trouble with the IRS. These and other wage and hour pitfalls are the subject of this panel.
