Is your organization at risk of misclassifying employees? – January 28
For most employers, compliance with wage and hour laws is one of the largest areas of risk they face. Are your employees classified as exempt or non-exempt correctly? Are you requiring your exempt, salaried employees to track their hours or require them to take paid time off in hourly increments? Are you requiring your independent contractors to come into the office and work a standard schedule? Your organization may be at risk of misclassification of jobs. Classification of jobs is based on FLSA requirements and when misclassified, an organization can be found liable for unpaid overtime going back two years, plus fines and penalties as assessed by the Department of Labor or class-action lawsuit. This session will discuss the fundamentals of the FLSA, when time is compensable and non-compensable and how to determine if your jobs are appropriately classified. Learning Objectives:
- Understand what the FLSA requirements are, including recent legislative updates, and what applies to exempt versus non-exempt employees.
- Understand the laws around what is considered compensable and non-compensable time.
- A general overview of properly classifying independent contractors.
- Overview of the duties test for exempt employees.
- Recommended strategies for treating exempt employees and limiting liability.
