  • “Exempt” Status:  Common misclassification mistakes including recent case filings, how to audit exempt status, and best practice recommendations.
     
  • State and Local Minimum Wage Hikes:  Review of the 2019 schedule of increases to California’s state minimum wage, and recent/future increases in minimum wage requirements in California cities and/or counties, as well as special minimum pay requirements for exempt software professionals.
     
  • Commission and Other Compensation Plans:  Requirements of California’s law requiring written commission contracts, and commission pay legal landmines under California employment law. Recent case law addressing a variable compensation plan and its compliance with minimum wage requirements.
