FLSA Fluctuating Workweek Interpretations and Regulatory Guidance
|Date / Time:
Over the last several years, the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has placed the employer community on notice that it intends to be very assertive in its enforcement of the minimum wage and overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.The Fluctuating Workweek
Consistent with this philosophy and its current modus operandi, the DOL concluded rulemaking that, among other things, discussed fluctuating workweek methodology for calculating overtime under the FLSA.
Of particular concern to employers, the DOL in its regulatory preamble stated that the payment of bonuses, shift differentials, and certain other forms of premium pay are inconsistent with and can invalidate an employer's use of fluctuating workweek methodology.
This webinar will provide an in-depth discussion of the fluctuating workweek, explore its legal and regulatory foundation, and examine whether and to what extent the DOL's latest regulatory pronouncement is likely to receive deference in the courts.
The program will also review practical compliance solutions. This webinar is critical for employers who want a thorough understanding of the benefits and risks of the fluctuating workweek in the current wage and hour enforcement climate.

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

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.
