  • 60 minutes

Employees who are “exempt” from the Fair Labor Standards Act are not entitled to overtime wages. It is all too easy for an employer to try to label someone as exempt in an effort to avoid overtime liability only to realize that it just delays the inevitable – a lawsuit and back wages that can wreak havoc on your budget. Misclassification lawsuits are on the rise. In fact, the growing number of misclassification suits is one of the reasons the Department of Labor was looking at “simplifying” how to determine exempt status. 

Unfortunately, the DOL did not change the duties test – leaving employers to grapple with determining whether an employee is exempt. A misclassification can be costly and frequently lead to class litigation. Employees are getting wiser to their rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and are realizing that their employers have been incorrectly designating them as exempt and, therefore, have not been paying them overtime they are due. Due to the frequent errors on employers’ part, many employees are grouping together to bring class actions or collective actions under the FLSA – making these suits more costly than ever.

This webinar from expert Susan Desmond will help you understand FLSA’s “white collar” exemptions, employee classification, improper deductions and how to be in compliance and avoid lawsuits.

Session Highlights:

  • How to apply the most common white collar exemptions – managerial, professional, and administrative

  • When employers can take advantage of the computer-related professional exemption

  • Just who are your outside salespersons

  • Avoiding mistakes by improper deductions

  • Keeping records of “hours worked” for employees considered exempt – is it a good idea?
