HIPAA and HITECH Review; Avoiding Common Wage and Hour Mistakes—with so much focus and uncertainty over the last few years on healthcare and the ACA, many companies have placed complying with the HIPAA Privacy Rules and HITECH Security Audits in the background, yet both laws are mandatory and can result in very large fines.

At the same time, Wage and Hour rules continue to cause the most headaches for companies and receive a great deal of scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Labor. Improper calculating of overtime, meals, breaks and waiting time is a huge problem, especially with more and more employees "on call" at all times of day and night.

Top employment law and data security attorneys, and a DOL investigator, will help businesses get up to speed on the requirements for these laws, sort out confusing areas and understand the practical steps they should be taking to stay on top of compliance:

  • Complying with HIPAA Privacy Rules and HITECH Security Audits—we will give an overview of these laws that apply to all businesses that in any way handle personal healthcare information in electronic or paper form; clearly describe the requirements and provide guidance on how to address mandates, including handling transactions correctly, what you need to do for electronic transactions, and the security and privacy safeguards you need to have in place.
  • Avoiding Common Wage and Hour Mistakes: What U.S. DOL Investigators Are Finding and Best Practices to Protect Your Company—labor law attorneys indicate that more than 25 percent of employers' questions deal with understanding Wage and Hour rules, and related compliance or fines. Our speakers—a U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Specialist, and top labor law attorney with years of in-depth experience—will explain the compliance challenges, specifics on what investigators are finding, and what companies should be doing to prevent violations under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
