Title:

Overtime Exemption Status Jeopardy: Practical Strategies to Manage Exempt Employees in Compliance with the FLSA

SKU:WC-1020188
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

The DOL’s newly proposed overtime exemption rules are getting closer to becoming final, “exempt vs. non-exempt” is, understandably, one of the hottest labor and employment issue right now.

When the DOL’s new rules go into effect, chances are you’ll need to reclassify some—or many—exempt employees to non-exempt status. But, what happens to those who will remain exempt under DOL rules?

If you aren’t careful, you could unknowingly do something that puts their overtime exemption status in jeopardy, so that, in the eyes of the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division they’re entitled to overtime compensation. Putting the exemption status at risk creates huge liability for your organization because you could be held liable for massive minimum wage and overtime payments for a class of workers’ whose exemption status has been compromised on account of how you’ve been managing your Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) obligations.

Don’t wind up on the receiving end of a single or collection 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 compensation, 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.

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.

The live 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.
