Calculating Overtime: HR's Pay Practice How-To For Federal Wage & Hour Law Compliance
|Date / Time:
When it comes to paying overtime, what seems like easy math can get very complicated very quickly if you're not up to date on federal regulations for calculating what you owe.
Questions often arise about what exactly constitutes the regular rate of pay, which is necessary for determining how much overtime compensation is owed. You must take into account commissions, bonuses, and other payments. Particularly vexing is how to compute the overtime pay on a bonus that rewards employees for a quarter, a year, or another set period of time.
Further, what happens to the regular pay rate calculation when an employee works in two job classifications that are paid different hourly rates? How can you ensure that you're accurately paying overtime at a blended rate?
Even with the best of intentions, you could find yourself facing a costly lawsuit if your overtime calculations are wrong. Don't wait until it's too late - learn how to properly determine employee overtime pay so you can stay in compliance.

|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.
