• Top FLSA compliance issues including:
  – Whether remote workers such as "outside salespeople" still qualify as exempt.
  – Reasonable reporting procedure for recording actual hours worked.

• Implications of employees "wandering" to work in other states or countries:
  – Whether insurance and payroll taxes in that new state are required.
  – What wage and hour or other state laws may apply.
  – Will travel back to the office have to be paid by the employer.
  – What expense reimbursement is required.

Speaking at the program will be Littler attorneys Gary C. Ankers, Jaclyn R. Giffen, and Anton A. Dirnberger.
