Wage & Hour Law Essentials

A recent upsurge of wage and hour lawsuits, including very large collective actions, has prompted managers to re-evaluate company wage and hour compliance. Many companies have discovered potentially huge liabilities in unpaid overtime, miscalculations of time worked and misclassification of employees as exempt. This program will provide a practical overview of the law for participants, allowing them to identify and correct problems and to minimize the possibility of wage and hour audits or employee lawsuits. It also will review the DOL's controversial "Final Regulations" which became effective in August 2004.

Learning Objectives:

  • Distinguish what issues are regulated by the Department of Labor under the FLSA and what issues are not
  • Identify and categorize whether or not your jobs qualify for exempt status under the FLSA and become familiar with all the exemption tests
  • Understand and apply what does and does not become part of the "regular rate" in computing overtime under the FLSA
  • Be familiar with those situations where an exempt employee's salary can legally be docked under the FLSA without risking the loss of the exemption
