Wage & Hour Law 2016: 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 has proposed the biggest overhaul of overtime law in U.S. history. This includes a DOUBLING of the salary threshold, making white-collar workers eligible for overtime pay if their salary falls below $50,440 per year ($970 per week). This will make millions more employees eligible for overtime—and force new costs, confusion and decisions onto you! Don't get caught in the DOL's regulation changes and growing enforcement net!
Find out if you're at risk — and what to do about it — in our newest webinar, Wage & Hour Law 2016: 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.
The upcoming spike in the salary threshold will force every company to make hard choices. How should you adjust schedules and hours to minimize the impact? Should you convert exempt into hourly workers? Raise base salaries now? Hire part-timers? Use bonuses?
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:
- How to correctly classify employees as either nonexempt (eligible for overtime) or exempt (not eligible). We will provide you with checklists to make the Exempt vs. Nonexempt decision under both the current and proposed rules.
- The details and timeline of President Obama's big overtime proposal—and how your organization should respond now.
- 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.
Plus, this interactive webinar allows you to have your question about overtime and the FLSA answered by a true expert, attorney Anniken Davenport.
When the DOL rewrote the federal overtime laws a decade 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 have injected even more confusion 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.
