Wages, employment, contractors, federal laws. . .what is going on and how do you handle it? Operators can get their questions answered at a human resources “clinic.”

CHICAGO — The 2010 LCT LEADERSHIP SUMMIT will include a critical session on employment practices and laws that affect operators during the three-day executive conference being held Sept. 28-30 at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park Hotel.

Manesh K. Rath, a partner at Keller and Heckman LLP, which specializes in employment, labor and occupational safety and health (OSHA) law, will hold a session called “Human Resources Clinic — Protecting Your Company" from 9:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 29.

Rath represents businesses and associations facing employment discrimination charges, wage and hour claims, and other areas of human resources law. He speaks nationwide on employment issues and has been quoted in numerous news publications and has been interviewed on television and radio.

In recent years, the chauffeured transportation industry has witnessed significant activity in wage hour law, both in the form of increased government enforcement action and litigation brought on by workers. The pay methods used by the industry vary greatly and many of these methods are unique to the industry. These challenges highlight the importance of establishing payroll practices with utmost care.

As a follow-up to his previous presentations, Rath will address the dilemma of how to pay empolyees. He'll help end the decade-long debate and present the final solution that can be implemented industry-wide.
