Wage & Hour Law 2015: Employee Classification Workshop & New Overtime Rules
|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)!
Plus, President Obama recently declared the FLSA as "outdated,” and ordered the DOL to rewrite the exemption rules in 2014. That will make millions more employees eligible for overtime pay - and heap new costs and confusion on you! Don't get caught in the DOL's growing enforcement net! Those new rules could be coming any day!
Find out if you're at risk — and what to do about it — in our newest webinar, Wage & Hour Law 2015: Employee Classification Workshop & New Overtime Rules.
The number of FLSA-related lawsuits in federal courts has spiked dramatically in the past decade.
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 harder than ever on overtime law violations.
Find out what President Obama has in mind for raising the minimum salary level at which employees automatically qualify for overtime pay (currently $455 per week). What will be the new amount … $550 … $970 … more? Which employees will it affect? How much will it cost? Are you better off adding additional employees instead? Or should you raise base salaries now?
On November 12, 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. You'll discover:
Plus, this interactive webinar allows you to have your question about overtime and the FLSA answered by a true expert, attorney Anniken Davenport.
- 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.
- How to plan ahead for the upcoming FLSA regulation rewrite.
- 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.
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 upcoming overtime rule changes in 2014 will no doubt inject even more confusion (and lawsuits) into the mix.
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.
