The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) continues to aggressively enforce the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Every week we see press releases touting the DOL’s success in catching employers who have violated the FLSA by failing to pay employees for all hours worked, pay overtime properly, or comply with the FLSA’s many other provisions. Don’t be one of those employers! The FLSA is among the most complex laws employers must deal with. This concentrated course focuses on FLSA essentials you must know to protect your company from liability.
- Which employers must comply with the FLSA?
- Which workers are protected by the FLSA?
- What records/postings does the FLSA require?
- What does the FLSA consider as “hours of work” that employers must pay for? (E.g. travel, on-call, and training time)
- How do employers properly calculate overtime?
- What impacts do bonus payment, shift differentials, piece rates, and other types of payment have on how employers should calculate overtime?
- What are the “white-collar exemptions” and how does that impact what employers do to comply with the FLSA?
