The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on Labor Law Hot Topics: Wage & Hour Issues Explored

New York, NY, October 23, 2010 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “Labor Law Hot Topics: Wage & Hour Issues Explored”. This two-hour event is scheduled on January 25, 2011 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET.

Event synopsis:

2010 has seen a torrent of regulatory changes which have affected nearly all aspects of corporate life. What's more is that the Fed appears to be going beyond issuing new regulations and legislating by interpreting the existing regulations. One such area where this is apparent is in Labor Law. Recent Department of Labor (DOL) enforcement efforts have centered on new interpretations of the existing regulations vs. the new ones. Evidence of this can be seen in a recent Amicus brief filed by the DOL which said that pharmaceuticals companies misclassified some of their employees and owed them overtime retroactively. These types of interpretations and subsequent enforcement actions could have big ramifications for all companies.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a team of key Labor Law experts to discuss the impact of this important issue on your firm. Included in the discussion are:

· Overview of the Department of Labor
· Who’s who and
· What are their priorities?
· Detailed discussion regarding Wage & Hour issues including:

· Blackberry work
