Overtime Compliance - It's Not as Simple as it May Look!
In-Person Tuesday 06/14/2022 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), People (Technical), Workplace (Technical)
Workplace Application:
Attendees wil learn about what's new regarding the FLSA's overtime pay requirements in terms of DOL regulatory and enforcement initiatives, and how employer's can minimize their exposure for unpaid overtime. 

REPEATED from Monday at 1:30pm.

The Department of Labor is aggressively taking steps to alter who's exempt vs. non-exempt, who's an employee vs. an independent contractor, what's compensable vs. non-compensable time, and how overtime is to be calculated. These developments and related policy and enforcement initiatives will be addressed, as well as various COVID vaccine/testing wage and hour issues. In addition, significant FLSA developments from the courts and Congress will be covered. FLSA compliance is the goal, and compliance equates to surviving DOL audits and the wrath of the plaintiffs' bar.  Along these lines,  costly overtime compliance mistakes that employers often make but can avoid will be identified, along with ways to significantly reduce if not eliminate unpaid overtime liability and litigation costs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn what employers need to know about recent changes to the FLSA's rules, changes arising from new regulations, new DOL opinions or other guidance, and significant court rulings.
  • Learn what the DOL and Congress is considering towards broadening the scope of who is entitled to overtime pay and changing how overtime pay is calculated.
  • Learn about significant judicial developments under the FLSA and how these developments may impact their operations.
  • See how you can modify your payroll, time and attendance policies to better conform to the FLSA and thereby greatly lessen your employer's financial exposure -- in terms of unpaid overtime, liquidated damages, and attorneys' fees --  to mistakes that otherwise could have been anticipated and avoided.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
