Wage and Hour Issues for Employers, Private and Public

On September 12, at 7:30 a.m., the Oxford Chamber of Commerce, together with Central Maine Human Resources Association and the Oxford Casino, are sponsoring a program on wage and hour issues for employers, private and public, at the Oxford Casino.   If you have an employee, the topic is relevant; whether you have an HR department or are just handling employee issues on your own, the discussion will be helpful.  Attorney Rebecca Webber, Skelton Taintor & Abbott, and Danielle Loring, Minot Town Administrator, will begin the program with an interactive discussion of what it means if an employee is exempt vs. non-exempt and the host of issues that are tied to those categories.  For example, being salaried and exempt are not the same thing.  This part of the program will then be followed by Attorney Jordan Payne Hay, Skelton Taintor & Abbott, who will dive into other wage and hour topics  such as overtime (what is “work time” and what is not compensable?), minimum wage, volunteers and interns, and alternatives to overtime ( e.g. “comp time,” “flex time,” etc.).  Attendees will come away with guidance materials and resources.  If there are particular issues you would like to see addressed, send an email to: rwebber@sta-law.com
