Employee Mandatory Time Off Programs (4-7-09 Webinar Recording)

It is not uncommon for employers to need to require employees to take time off, such as for a shutdown during the holidays.  Employers are often surprised to learn about the restrictions that California and federal employment laws impose on mandatory time off programs.

Watch this complimentary on-demand webinar for a review of key legal issues affecting such programs, including:

  • California Labor Commissioner opinions regarding advance notice requirements before requiring vacation/PTO use, and when the duration of mandatory time off transforms it into a “termination” of employment — requiring immediate payout of all earned/accrued wages.
  • Implications of the guaranteed weekly salary requirement for exempt employees, both with respect to shutdowns and other work schedule reductions.

Ray Hixson and Brian Nagatani co-presented this webinar on April 7, 2009.  Please note that the webinar does not address changes in the law since the recording date.  Please also note that the webinar provides only general information about the law, and does not constitute legal advice.  Companies or individuals seeking legal advice should retain counsel.

Please note that HR and attorney continuing education credits are not available for watching this recorded program.
