New U.S. Master Wage - Hour Guide from CCH Offers Concise Guidance On Complex Requirements

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., November 16, 2000) – As many organizations cope with the challenges of the current labor shortage by turning to contingent workforces and nontraditional patterns of work time, many fear they will run afoul of complex federal wage and hour laws. To help all employers negotiate the obstacle course of these requirements, CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of employment and human resource law information, services and e-learning software, has introduced a thorough reference on the entire range of wage and hour law requirements in one handy book, the CCH 2001 U.S. Master™ Wage-Hour Guide.

This new reference provides, in a convenient, single source, comprehensive coverage of the core body of knowledge needed by anyone who must deal with the maze of federal and state wage-hour requirements. ($44.95. To order or for more information call 1-800-248-3248, or visit

"Employers who master the basics of wage-hour law compliance can avoid time-consuming and expensive audits, sanctions and litigation," noted CCH Human Resources marketing manager Steve Slater, "but that is easier said than done. With this new Guide, however, the compliance onus is simplified as CCH clearly lays out the applicable laws and requirements and offers practical guidance on effective compliance strategies."

The valuable Guide opens with a plain-English overview of the federal laws and statutes regulating employee wage and hour issues, including the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Then, the new desktop reference delivers more detailed coverage of topics of interest to those on the front lines of employee classification and payroll, featuring easy-to-understand, expert explanations. Issues covered include:

  • Family and Medical Leave
  • Coverage
  • Exemptions
  • Child Labor
  • Homework
  • Working Time
  • Minimum Wages
  • overtime Pay
  • Recordkeeping
  • Enforcement
  • Equal Pay
  • Consumer Credit Protection
  • Migrant and Seasonal Workers

Statutory, regulatory and case citations are included in the discussions throughout the CCH 2001 U.S. Master Wage-Hour Guide. References to CCH Labor Law Reports, Wages-Hours – where official texts, decisions and explanations on point can be found – are also provided when in-depth information is needed.

And, the information is presented in a way that makes the law come to life as the handbook demonstrates how the rules apply to particular employment situations and explores the practical aspects of employment arrangements in light of federal wage and hour laws.

While designed for the front-line human resources professional, the Guide is also a useful desktop reference for corporate counsel, attorneys and consultants. The comprehensive content and clear definitions also make it ideally suitable for use in law schools, universities and libraries.
