ROSELAND, N.J./March 13, 2013 -- Connell Foley partner Michael A. Shadiack was a featured presenter at the New Jersey Business & Industry Association’s (NJBIA) “Avoiding the Wage and Hour Trap” seminar held on March 13, 2013 in Eatontown, New Jersey.
Shadiack provided more than 200 human resource professionals and management representatives in attendance with practical advice on properly classifying a worker as either an employee or an independent contractor, and correctly classifying employees as either exempt or non-exempt for wage and hour purposes.
Given the increased focus by federal and state governmental agencies on these issues, and the liability that can befall and unsuspecting employer, Shadiack’s presentation was enlightening for all those in attendance.
