Exempt, Non-Exempt, Or Contractor: How To Classify Workers And Avoid Costly Mistakes
Could some of your overtime-exempt employees really be entitled to it? Are you sure?
HR managers must be diligent in determining if an employee is properly classified exempt or non-exempt or as an independent contractor under federal and state law. Then, there are requirements for pay, deductions, and meal and rest breaks, to avoid costly lawsuits and ensure fair labor practices.
You must proceed carefully when reviewing classifications to avoid costly mistakes and lawsuits. Knowing how to classify employees is critical, especially when exempt employees are performing duties beyond their job descriptions.
With the Labor Department poised to overhaul the white collar overtime exemptions, there's never been a better time to get up to speed on classification rules.
Join us for this in-depth webinar. Our presenter, a skilled employment attorney, will teach you the tests that determine if an employee is exempt, non-exempt, or an independent contractor. You'll learn what to watch out for to avoid expensive legal missteps under federal laws, and what regulations apply your state.
