FLSA Rules, Regulations, & Classification
Standards Audio Conference
1-Hour CareerTrack Audio Conference
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) affects
more than 90 million American workers. This federal law regulates a number of
areas of wage and hour law, including minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping,
and child labor standards requirements for both employers and employees. Are you
certain that you are correctly classifying your employees and interpreting all
of aspects of the law correctly?
With all of the rules and regulations involved, specifically with exempt and
nonexempt employee classifications, the FLSA is one of HR's trickiest fields to
navigate. Many organizations struggle with employee classification standards,
and are even further confused by what criteria are used to determine the
appropriate classification. Is the employee salaried or hourly? What are the
employee's job duties and job title? Are other specifics involved? Make even one
mistake administering FLSA, and you could be putting your company at risk.
Can you confidently answer the following questions?
- What types of set standards and rules help classify nonexempt employees?
- Which employees are provided an exemption from minimum wage and overtime
- How should the salary level, salary basis, and job duty tests be applied
to your employees to determine classifications?
- Are highly compensated employees classified differently than typical
- What is the difference between blue collar employee and white collar
- Does pay frequency affect how overtime calculations are determined?
- How is overtime pay calculated when a holiday falls during the week?
- How are commission-based employees classified?
If you answered "I'm not sure"; or ";I don't know"; to even one question, you
are putting your organization at risk everyday. The number of FLSA lawsuits has
been rapidly increasing over the last several years. Many major companies have
had to pay millions of dollars in back pay and penalties for misclassification
charges. Don't let the same thing happen to you!
