The U.S. Department of Labor and private litigants continue their assault on employers that may be incorrectly treating non-exempt employees as exempt. As a result of these cases and investigations, employers should reexamine their classification procedures to be certain that their executive, administrative, professional, computer and sales staff are being properly compensated.

Now is the time to make sure you are in compliance by doing a thorough review and correcting all potential violations within your workforce.

This 90-minute interactive webinar will teach you how to conduct a thorough review, how to identify potential violations, how to come into compliance, how to make systemic corrections that will reduce future problems and how to lessen the risk of costly lawsuits and enforcement actions.

Questions That Will Be Answered:

  • What are key do’s and don’ts when classifying workers?
  • What is a compliance audit for purposes of the Fair Labor Standards Act?
  • What are the latest developments in the area of FLSA exemptions?
  • How can employers reduce the risk of being sued for misclassifications?
  • How can employers reduce damages if they are sued successfully?

Target Audience:

  • Human Resources Professionals
  • In-House Labor and Employment Counsel
