    EXTRA PAY FOR PIECE RATE SUPREME COURT UPDATE
    $30 - wafla Members

    June 16 - Extra Pay for Piece Rate Supreme Court Update
    Adam Belzberg, a partner at Stoel Rives LLP who represented Sakuma Brothers Farms in the recent Supreme Court hearing, provides an update on this important matter. Sakuma Brothers Farms recently shifted from piece rate to ‘hourly plus bonus’ thus completely insulating their company against an adverse Supreme Court decision. Wafla recommends that you consider a similar action. This webinar explores several actions you could take – regardless of the Court decision – to preserve a bonus system while protecting you against a claim for back pay.

    Make sure you are in full compliance!
