Recent decisions from California's courts have raised tricky compliance questions for employers regarding commission- and production-based compensation arrangements for nonexempt employees. What issues do employers need to understand to ensure compliance with California law? What are the best practices for minimizing litigation risk? How can employers reward and motivate nonexempt employee productivity, while still complying with the law? Join us for a breakfast briefing to discuss these questions and other important considerations for California employers.

Topics will include:

  • Strategies for structuring nonexempt employee compensation to reward productivity
  • Legal issues raised by productivity-based compensation for nonexempt employees
  • The key differences between federal and California law requirements
  • How to properly calculate overtime pay for nonexempt employees who receive incentive compensation
  • How to correctly display incentive-based compensation on itemized pay statements in California
