Department of Labor and the increased aggressiveness being shown it is important for companies to understand the Fair Labor Standards Act in greater detail.

Description

This webinar will cover the top five mistakes that companies make in administering the Fair Labor Standards Act. This law was created in 1938 and was made to cover a different world of work that we have today. Yet modern companies and modern employees still have to be covered by these regulations.

We will cover items such as why you cannot let an employee eat at their desk, or volunteer to work without pay, and why you cannot take action against an employee for reporting you to the government

Why should you Attend

The Fair Labor Standards Act requires that employers pay people correctly. Overtime, exemptions, salary or hourly, break times, meal times and travel time are all issues that cause employers difficulty. Employers need to understand these issues in order to avoid litigation, especially in the light of the revision of the FLSA that will create 4.2 million new nonexempt employees. Annually wage and hour mistakes cost companies in the United States millions of dollars in back pay and fines. With the increased scrutiny companies are under by the U.S. Department of Labor and the increased aggressiveness being shown it is important for companies to understand the Fair Labor Standards Act in greater detail.

Company managers and human resources professionals need to understand the top five mistakes made and how to avoid them. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act the details count. Not paying attention to these details can cost a company thousands of dollars in back pay, thousands of dollars in fines and thousands of dollars in lost productivity. This not just a big company issue. Small companies are even more susceptible to making these mistakes because often managers and administrative personnel are not trained in the basics of Wage & Hour law. The US Department of Labor is targeting ever smaller companies and broadening the scope of their investigations.

Areas Covered

The attendee will learn these top five mistakes:

1 - Misclassifying non-exempt employees as exempt.
