Jeopardizing Exempt Status
|Date / Time:
Once exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act, employees do not necessarily remain exempt for the duration of their employment. Actions taken, or not taken, by employers can and do jeopardize the exemptions claimed, leading unknowing employers down the path to potentially ruinous liability for unpaid minimum wages and overtime.
This live webinar is designed to help you identify issues which jeopardize exempt status and correct them. The webinar will also address certain myths regarding what you can and cannot do. The topics to be covered will include payment on a salary basis, permissible and impermissible deductions from salary, supplementing salary with additional payments, reducing salaries or hours, required use of paid time off, performing nonexempt work and more.

|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.
