Webinar On Calculating Overtime Correctly under the Fair Labor Standards Act

Calculating Overtime Correctly under the Fair Labor Standards Act

Overview:The webinar will cover a host of issues under the FLSA - what time is "working time" and, therefore, must be used in an overtime calculation; legal methods of calculating the hourly rate (it is not as easy as you think); various legal methods of paying overtime that can save your company money; and recordkeeping requirements. We will also discuss how to "fix" your errors when you discover they have been made. Finally, we will discuss what you can expect if you have the misfortune of being named in a collective or class action lawsuit.Why should you attend: Although the Fair Labor Standards Act has been around a long time, it is one of the most frequently violated employment law - particularly in how to calculate overtime correctly. Employers fail to recognize what hours must be compensated and how the working hours should be compensated. Improper calculations can lead to employees being underpaid or even being paid too much! Plaintiffs' lawyers have put up billboards and other advertising to sue employers for the individual but, most often, in a collective and/or class action. The Department of Labor is as active in auditing than it has ever been. Areas Covered in the Session:What the FLSA requires with regard to minimum wage and overtime.What time must be compensated? Waiting time? On-Call Time? Rest and Meal Periods? Sleep time? Travel time? Donning and doffing? Lectures?
