Wage and Hour Compliance : Avoiding Stiff Penalties Under Fair Labor Standards Act and State Regulations

September 23 @ 2:00 pm - October 26 @ 11:00 am CDT


The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is one of the most misunderstood employment laws in the country. Basically, it governs the payment of wages and who must be paid overtime. To make things more confusing, the Department of Labor has implemented a number of exemptions to the requirement to pay overtime such as the White-Collar Exemptions and the 7(i) exemption for retail and service establishments. The DOL also allows different ways of computing overtime pay. In addition, many states have implemented their own regulations on salaries required to qualify as an exempt.

Many organizations do not understand their responsibilities with regard to what types of positions qualify as white-collar exemptions, how to handle commissions, shift differential and production bonuses for hourly employees, and other nuances of complying such as handling training and travel time.

The FLSA is a Federal Law, but employers must know that many states, municipalities, and any type of governmental contract may have their own rules regarding minimum wage and overtime.

Maintaining compliance is critical to your business. Failing to do so can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
