Wage and Hour Division (WHD)
Free Seminars: Understanding Special Minimum Wages under Section 14(c) of the FLSA
The U.S. Department of Laborís Wage and Hour Division will offer free seminars to assist employers and community rehabilitation programs (CRPs) in complying with Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Guardians and family members of workers with disabilities are invited and encouraged to attend as well.
Training will cover topics including the certification process, performing prevailing wage surveys, and conducting time studies. Other special issues for Section 14(c) certificate holders, including several areas where Wage and Hour Division staff have found compliance problems in past years, will be addressed, such as calculating commensurate wages and accurately tracking hours worked. The sessions will also include a roundtable discussion to provide participants the opportunity to share the challenges that they face with the requirements of their special minimum wage certificates, as well as their best practices developed to remain in compliance with this regulation.
Seminars for 2014 are being scheduled and will be finalized in March 2014. Check back here for more information and registration information. There is no fee to attend a seminar
