Wage And Hour Compliance Guide From CCH Sorts Out Complex Requirements
(Riverwoods, ILL., April 22, 2000)
Its never been more difficult to comply with the maze of federal and state wage and
hours law, but its also never been more important, according to CCH INCORPORATED
(CCH), a leading provider of human resources and payroll law information. The laws
themselves are complex and sometimes contradictory, while business considerations often
dictate the use of a contingent workforce and nontraditional patterns of work time.
To help employers master the basics of compliance and avoid time-consuming and
expensive agency audits, government sanctions and litigation, CCH now offers the Wage
and Hour Compliance Guide, a one-volume, loose-leaf reference filled with practical
advice and tools. ($279. To order or for more information, call 800-449-9525, contact your
local CCH representative at 888- 224-7377 or visit http://hr.cch.com.)
The Guide shows employers how they can institute wage practices that minimize
unnecessary payroll expense, comply with the law and stand up under scrutiny. It gives
step-by-step guidance on how to compute wages accurately and correctly document wage
policies and payments.
After an introductory "20-Minute Primer" on wage and hour law, the Guide leads
users through topics of crucial interest to those on the front lines of employee
classification and payroll:
- Determining FLSA Coverage
- Counting Time Worked
- Minimum Wages
- Overtime Pay Calculations
- Child Labor
- Recordkeeping Procedures
- Enforcement Methods
- Court Procedures and Remedies
- Equal Pay for Equal WorkAn Overview
