The Fair Labor Standards Act is one of the cornerstones of American employment law. Yet, even though the law has been on the books for more than 70 years, complying with its sometimes vague provisions is an ongoing challenge for HR professionals. In this program, a leading authority on the FLSA, Tammy McCutchen of the law firm Littler Mendelson, will clearly explain the elements of the law that consistently confuse employers:
- What is the best practice process for determining whether an employee is exempt or nonexempt?
- What qualifies as compensable time worked?
- What types of compensation need to be included in the overtime pay calculation?
By understanding these three key FLSA topics, you can help protect your organization against costly wage-and-hour claims and even class action lawsuits.
