    Topic: "Everyone Violates FLSA…  How to Minimize your Risk”

    Speaker: Hans Nilges

    The law firm of Morrow & Meyer, LLC will present on legal issues surrounding the Fair Labor Standards Act.  The presentation will initially highlight the ubiquity of inadvertent violations of the FLSA from oversight or misunderstanding.  The attorneys will then discuss and provide example of the legal, economic and business consequences of such errors.  Best practices will be discussed, and tools will be provided, to discover current errors and avoid future errors.  Finally, the attorneys will walk attendees through the anatomy of an FLSA collective action lawsuit, which will include suggestions as to how liability may be mitigated even after a lawsuit has been filed.
