This webinar will cover the top five mistakes that companies make in administering the Fair Labor Standards Act law. 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.
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 of 1938 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 FLSA overtime regulations.
The US Department of Labor is targeting ever smaller companies and broadening the scope of their investigations.
• Fair Labor Standards Act exempt employees and misclassifying non-exempt employees as exempt.
• Not tracking time properly.
• Not paying overtime as required.
• Not paying supplemental time correctly (break time, travel time, etc.)
• Improperly classifying employees as independent contractors.
We 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.
We will also cover the correct methods for dealing with FLSA overtime regulations and pay issues.
Gain a better understanding of the Fair Labor Standards Act in order to avoid non-compliance with the law. Mistakes are often made due to a misunderstanding of the law.
