With the expected spike of absenteeism, wage and hours problems can arise during a Pandemic. Employers must always keep their obligations under the Fair Labor Standard Act ("FLSA") in mind in dealing with these issues. Additionally, employers should review the U.S. Department of Labor – Wage and Hour Division's guidance on the Pandemic Flu and the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The very first question that employers must consider before deciding to not pay an employee for time missed from work is whether the employee is subject to the minimum wage and overtime requirements. The answer to that question will determine if and how the employee’s pay can be withheld for absenteeism. And that depends on whether an employee is an Exempt or a Non-Exempt one. The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division issued guidelines that address many Fair Labor Standards Act issues that have arisen due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

In this session, expert speaker Matthew Burr will discuss all the related questions of upcoming potential changes that are important for an organization.
