Join us as Paul Saito with Cades Schutte LLP helps you learn how to avoid common pay practice pitfalls that challenge employers. This session will include the following topics:
- Exempt Employees v. Non-Exempt Employees: Incorrectly classifying employees as exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act can result in back pay, fines and liquidated damages. Our speaker will discuss the white-collar exemption tests and provide a brief update on how the Trump Administration might handle enforcement of new salary test regulations promulgated during the Obama Administration.
- Compensable Time for Non-Exempt Employees: Learn when and how non-exempt employees must be compensated for travel, training, changing clothes, meal, rest and nursing mother breaks, on-call or standby time, etc. Information on FLSA timekeeping and rounding practices will also be shared.
- Calculating Regular Rates of Pay and Overtime Pay: Learn how to calculate the regular rate of pay for overtime purposes in varying circumstances, including where non-exempt employees are paid a salary, work at two or more different rates, or receive premium pay, night differentials, hazard pay, bonuses, commissions, gifts, awards, or other payments.
