What’s the Real Risk? Practical Advice for Meal and Rest Break and Employee Pay Structure Issues and Real Case Examples of the Potential Liability
Recent court decisions have significantly changed the law governing meal and rest periods and commission-only compensation plans. Employers struggle with how to implement these legal changes and what they really mean for the average business on a day-to-day basis. In this breakfast briefing, we will discuss questions like: After the Brinker case, do we still need to proactively pay meal period penalties? Do we still need to discipline employees for not taking their breaks? Can we still pay employees only a commission or piece-rate? We will also discuss the practical realities of the workplace and what you can do to minimize risk. Meal and rest break violations and the payment of commissions routinely result in class actions against both big and small companies. Thus, we will pull back the curtain on the realities of wage-hour lawsuits and give you a glimpse into the mind of your defense attorney regarding ways to minimize and avoid potential damages.

Presented by Usama Kahf and Boris Sorsher, Attorneys at Law with Fisher Phillips. Usama and Boris represent and counsel employers in all areas of labor and employment law, including defense of class actions, wage & hour, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, employee discipline and termination, and trade secrets.
