Overtime Exemptions At Risk: How to Classify Employees and Comply with the New FLSA
|Date / Time:
Now that the DOL’s newly proposed overtime exemption rules are closer to becoming final, “exempt vs. nonexempt” is, understandably, one of the hottest HR issues today. Why?
Once the new rules are in effect, any one of many possible management mistakes could put your exempt employees' status in jeopardy, making them entitled to overtime compensation and creating a huge liability for your organization. Plus there is the risk of fines for FLSA violations.
Don’t wind up on the receiving end of a single, class, or collective action alleging that—by virtue of something your organization did (or didn’t do)—you’ve “blown” the exemption and must compensate the worker or workers for unpaid overtime, in addition to hefty penalties.
Join us for an in-depth webinar on the trouble spots to watch for—and the proactive strategies for minimizing your legal risks.
- “Mythbusters” to set you straight on what will and will not jeopardize an employee’s exempt status under the FLSA
- How to meet overtime exemption requirements concerning the salary level, salary basis, and duties tests
- Red flags to watch out for concerning managers’ performance of nonexempt duties when “pitching in” to get the job done
- The many ways in which you may be jeopardizing exemptions and how to correct those mistakes and preserve “white-collar” status
- What happens when you supplement an employee's salary with additional payments
- Examples of permissible and impermissible pay deductions for exempt employees
- How to use the FLSA’s safe harbor provision to your advantage—to add a layer of protection if an improper salary deduction occurs
- And much 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.
