Wage and Hour Division (WHD)
Free Seminar: Emphasis on wage requirements for workers 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.
These compliance seminars will cover a range of topics including the certification process, performing prevailing wage determinations and conducting time studies. The Departmentís new online calculators will be featured in group exercises. Discussions will also include areas where WHD staff have found compliance problems in past years, such as common errors made by section 14(c) certificate holders, calculating commensurate wages and accurately tracking hours worked. Seminars will also address compliance requirements under Executive Order 13658, which establishes a minimum wage for certain federal contractors, as well as addresses upcoming changes to the section 14(c) under the Workforce Opportunity and Innovation Act (WOIA).
There is no fee to attend this conference; however, space is limited. If you wish to attend, please click on your desired location and follow the registration prompt. Each attendee must register separately. If registration is not yet open for the event you wish to attend, please check back.
