Overtime Exemptions In California: How To Classify Employees And Comply With Exemption Rules
|Date / Time:
Overtime exemption is one of the hottest HR issues today. Why?
Overtime exemption misclassifications will put your exempt employees' status in jeopardy, making them entitled to compensation while creating a huge liability for your organization.
California has its own set of rules when it comes to FLSA exemptions that are different than federal rules—specifically, how white-collar workers are classified—and it’s important to understand the distinct differences when it comes to your compliance obligations.
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). Join us when attorney Allen Kato will reveal proactive strategies for minimizing your legal risks when it comes to overtime exemptions in California.

|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.
