About This Course:
December 1, 2016 marks the effective date of the Department of Labor’s final rule updating federal overtime exemption regulations. With 392,000 non-exempt employees, California has the largest percentage of workers nationwide who will be affected by the final regulations.

As of that date, a vast number of California employees will no longer meet the salary requirements for overtime exemptions. It’s critical for employers to understand their legal obligations to pay non-exempt employees minimum wage for all hours worked plus overtime.

The devil lies in the details when deciding whether a non-exempt employee has engaged in compensable work time here in California thanks to voluminous Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) regulations and federal rules as well.

There are so many questions that come up in everyday life when seeking to correctly address this issue. For example:
  • Are you responsible for paying an employee who works off the clock?

  • What about paying for travel time for the full duration of a business trip?

  • How do breaks factor into whether time is compensable? Is standby or “on-call” time compensable?

  • Which “preliminary” and “postliminary” activities are compensable?

  • And, how do you calculate overtime based on hours worked?
Join us when Cathleen Yonahara, a San Francisco-based employment attorney with Freeland Cooper & Foreman, LLP, will explain the practical impact of the DOL’s final overtime exemption rule on California workplaces and how to correctly determine what’s “on-the-clock” for your non-exempt workforce.

  • What’s deemed compensable hours worked and travel time under California’s DLSE regulations and federal law
