Overtime Law 2012 - Who’s Exempt, Who’s Not?
|Date / Time:
"The number of small businesses facing overtime lawsuits has exploded." - Fortune magazine
Businesses of ALL shapes and sizes are being forced to pay out big bucks for misclassifying employees and failing to pay proper overtime.
Is your company vulnerable? Department of Labor officials estimate that more than 70% of employers are out of compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)!
Don't get caught in the DOL's growing enforcement net! Find out if you're at risk — and what to do about it.
If you're like most employers, your payroll is strewn with misclassified employees — ticking time bombs that could cost you a fortune. And the Obama administration's Department of Labor is cracking down on overtime law violations.
On March 27, Anniken Davenport, Esq., who literally wrote the book on wage-and-hour compliance, will offer practical, step-by-step FLSA compliance advice.
Learn how to master the ins and outs of this complex law and discover:
- How to correctly classify employees as either nonexempt (eligible for overtime) or exempt (not eligible), while sidestepping the triggers for lawsuits and fines
- Why allowing exempt employees to take on extra work can be dangerous
- Special circumstances when you must pay hourly workers for travel time, on-call hours, meal breaks and training periods
- How to control after hours work in the era of email, smartphones and PDAs
- When the law allows you to dock the pay of salaried employees
- The single most effective way to discipline employees who work unauthorized overtime
- What to do if you've been misclassifying employees as exempt and need to fix the problem before DOL knocks on the door
- What may soon require you to rethink using independent contractors
Plus, this interactive webinar allows you to have your question about overtime and the FLSA answered by a true expert, Anniken Davenport.
When the DOL rewrote the federal overtime laws a few years ago, the goal was to reduce the confusion over exempt vs. nonexempt status. But as even a top Labor official admitted, "We thought [the new regulation] would fix that. It really hasn't."
The result: More confusion and more lawsuits. Wal-Mart agreed to settle a series of overtime lawsuits for half a billion dollars!
Please join us at this empowering event — so you can find and defuse your payroll mistakes before they trigger a lawsuit or Department of Labor investigation.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
