    Duration: 90 Min
This session will review the current Department of Labor regulations as they apply to the white collar exemptions to the minimum wage and overtime requirement of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The tests for exemption are the salary basis test, minimum salary requirement, and the duties tests. These tests have changed over the years and are complex and can be confusing. In addition, there are strict record keeping requirements and salary integrity requirements to prevent disqualification of the exemption. The webinar will also describe proposed changes to the rules and how employers can prepare for the changes.

Why Should You Attend:

Making sure that employees are properly classified as exempt or non-exempt can be a daunting task. Misclassification of employees as exempt can be costly in terms of penalties and back pay awards for overtime compensation. This session will discuss the ways that employers can stay compliant as well as some of the ways employers have found themselves in trouble.

Both the federal Department of Labor and State Wage and Hour agencies are engaged in enforcement initiatives concerned with misclassification of employees as exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime requirements. Employers are often confused as to which exemptions may apply to a particular employee.

Topic Background:

The Fair Labor Standards Act provides a number of exemptions to the overtime and minimum wage standards. This webinar discusses the requirements for the “white collar” exemptions for executive, administrative, and professional employees and the facts that must be established in asserting the exemption including the salary basis of payment, the employee’s primary duty, and that the employee regularly and customarily performs the primary duty.

The Department of Labor has proposed new rules for exempt employees. The new rules are expected to increase the minimum salary threshold for exempt employees and revise the duties tests for classification of employees as exempt from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labors Standards Act.
