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 http://onlinestore.cch.com.)
"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
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.

to those on the front lines of employee classification and payroll, featuring
easy-to-understand, expert explanations. Issues covered include:
- Family and Medical Leave

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.

also a useful desktop reference for corporate counsel, attorneys and consultants. The
