This session will review the current regulations and the new rules proposed by the Department of labor. Both the federal Department of Labor and State Wage and Hour agencies are engaged in enforcement initiatives concerned with employee misclassification as exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime requirements. Employers are often confused as to which exemptions may apply to a particular employee. 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. Penalties for non-compliance can be costly.

Join this session by expert speaker Patrick A Haggerty, where he will explain how to determine whether an employee qualifies for exemption from the FLSA minimum wage and overtime requirements. How to handle certain employee absences from work, including FLSA intermittent leave, use of paid time off for part day absences, and employer actions that can lead to disqualification.

 Session Highlights: 

In this session you will learn: 

  • The differences in the various types of exemptions. 

  • Work activities that support exempt status and those that indicate nonexempt status
