Wage And Hour Compliance Guide From CCH Sorts Out Complex Requirements

(Riverwoods, ILL., April 22, 2000) – It’s never been more difficult to comply with the maze of federal and state wage and hours law, but it’s 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

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
  • Exemptions
  • Counting Time Worked
  • Minimum Wages
  • Overtime Pay Calculations
  • Child Labor
  • Homework
  • Recordkeeping Procedures
  • Enforcement Methods
  • Court Procedures and Remedies
  • Equal Pay for Equal Work—An Overview
  • Government Contracts
  • Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers
  • Garnishment of Wages
  • State Wage Laws

Designed for Practical Use

Wage and Hour Compliance Guide is designed for use by busy professionals, featuring easy-to-understand explanations and case analyses.

The focus throughout is on preventative strategies and implementing those strategies through training, proper recordkeeping and employee communications. Users will also find proven tactics for handling DOL audits and typical wage and hour litigation.

Throughout the Guide, subscribers will find ready-to-use tools and compliance aids such as sample policies, official forms and posters, checklists and practitioner tips. A table of cases provides a springboard for speedy research.

Keeping Current

Along with updates to the contents of the Wage and Hour Compliance Guide, subscribers receive a quarterly newsletter on case law and legal and regulatory developments to help keep them informed as the law evolves and new strategies emerge. Subscribers can count on receiving reliable and accurate advice from experts on a wide range of compliance issues including analysis of important state and federal court rulings, feature interviews with top wage-hour professionals, questions and answers, problems and solutions and wage and benefit survey information.
