The Top Five Fair Labor Standards Act Issues to Make Sure you don't Err On

This webinar will cover the top five mistakes that companies make in administering the Fair Labor Standards Act. This law was created in 1938 and was made to cover a different world of work that we have today.

Overview:This webinar will cover the top five mistakes that companies make in administering the Fair Labor Standards Act. This law was created in 1938 and was made to cover a different world of work that we have today. Yet modern companies and modern employees still have to be covered by these regulations.Why should you attend: Annually wage and hour mistakes cost companies in the United States millions of dollars in back pay and fines. With the increased scrutiny companies are under by the U.S. Department of Labor and the increased aggressiveness being shown it is important for companies to understand the Fair Labor Standards Act in greater detail. Company managers and human resources professionals need to understand the top five mistakes made and how to avoid them. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act the details count. Not paying attention to these details can cost a company thousands of dollars in back pay, thousands of dollars in fines and thousands of dollars in lost productivity? This not just a big company issue. Small companies are even more susceptible to making these mistakes because often managers and administrative personnel are not trained in the basics of Wage & Hour law. The US Department of Labor is targeting ever smaller companies and broadening the scope of their investigations.Areas Covered in the Session:Misclassifying non-exempt employees as exemptNot tracking time properlyNot paying overtime as requiredNot paying supplemental time correctly (break time, travel time, etc)Improperly classifying employees as independent contractorsWe will cover items such as why you cannot let an employee eat at their desk, or volunteer to work without pay, and why you cannot take action against an employee for reporting you to the government. Who Will Benefit:HR ManagersOffice ManagersHR AdministratorsManagersSupervisorsAccountants and Controllers with HR ResponsibilityInstructor:Michael D.
