Fair Labor Standards Act: Coverage and Compliance Issues

About This Course:
A major challenge is ensuring compliance with wage and hour laws. Those laws are extensive and complex, and claims against employers in virtually every industry are on the rise.

In particular, employers often misunderstand the exemptions to overtime requirements and fail to properly classify their employees, resulting in potential back pay claims. Even where employees have been properly classified as exempt, employers will sometimes inadvertently destroy the exempt status, opening up another avenue for back pay claims.

This webinar will explain the various exemptions from overtime, how to take advantage of them and how to avoid losing them. You will learn how to determine whether an employee falls within one of the three white-collar exemptions, and how to calculate the number of hours worked for which employees must be paid.
