"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.

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.

- 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.
