This lively and challenging CLE program will provide the nuts-and-bolts necessary for attendees to understand the, at times confusing, formulas that apply when calculating wage-related damages under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law. Join a distinguished panel of management and employee-side attorneys as they explain the myriad ways in which damages are calculated under both laws.  

The panel will discuss specific and complex examples of issues that arise in practice, such as:
  • calculating hourly, overtime, and minimum wage rates (salaried, commission, shift pay, blended rates)
  • special rules for the calculation of damages for workers in the hospitality/restaurant, domestic and building services industries
  • spread-of-hours pay and non-hourly wage rates (salaried and piece-rate employees)
  • statutory damages under the Wage Theft Prevention Act
  • overtime gap rule
  • bonuses
  • fluctuating workweek
  • interest under state and federal laws
  • liquidated damages
  • tip credits and tip damages
  • spreadsheet tips and calculations
