Accelerated Leadership Series #4: Legal

“Advanced Wage and Hour Issues to Prevent Costly Mistakes”

Instructor: Elaina Smiley, Partner, Meyer, Unkovic & Scott LLP


One of the most costly mistakes a business can make is related to misunderstanding the wage and hour laws and not properly paying employees.  This seminar discusses in depth these common mistakes:


  • Misclassifying all salaried employees as exempt from overtime
  • Bonuses and commissions for hourly employees that are not properly included in overtime rates
  • Improper deductions from employees’ pay such as short breaks
  • Not properly paying hourly employees for travel time
  • Tracking time worked for teleworking employees
  • Vacation and sick pay issues
  • Commission plans that do not clearly define when commissions payments terminate


“Understanding Sneaky Contract Clauses”

Instructor: Kevin Israel, Partner, Meyer, Unkovic & Scott LLP


Ensuring that your agreement will hold up in court or that you’re not entering into a contract that is detrimental to your business can be tricky. This seminar discusses a number of contract provisions regularly included in agreements that on the surface seem innocuous, but can trip up a business including:


  • Indemnification Clauses
  • Insurance Requirements
  • Loopholes
  • Intellectual Property Clauses
  • Automatic Renewal
  • Termination Clauses
  • Governing Law & Jurisdiction Provisions
