The FLSA contains dozens of exemptions, which provide that specific categories of employers and employees aren’t subject to the Act’s overtime requirements. Most common are the “white-collar” exemptions for executive, administrative, and professional employees, computer professionals, and outside sales employees.

What are these exemptions exactly? Who qualifies? What must you do to make sure that your employees are properly classified, and, most importantly how can you make sure that your practices comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act so you do not fall prey to a Department of Labor audit – or worse, a lawsuit—resulting in unpaid overtime, liquidated damages, other fines, and penalties in addition to your legal fees? Join this webinar and find out!

Why You Should Attend:

During the last decade or two, employers have found it increasingly difficult to decide which employees are entitled to overtime. Those classifications are commonly referred to as exempt employees (those who meet the FLSA’s requirements to be exempt from overtime pay) and non-exempt employees (employees the law requires to be paid overtime).

Who Should Attend:

  • Business owners
  • CEO’s
  • CFO’s
  • Controllers
  • Compensation Officers
  • Payroll Administrators
  • Human Resources Practitioners at all levels
  • Senior Managers
