Dissect. Assess. Classify.

Wage-and-hour claims are the most common, most costly, and fastest-growing legal attacks on employers.  At the heart of this liability is misclassifying positions and employees as "exempt" from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Our FSLA advanced workshops focus on the more challenging and misunderstood FLSA exemptions and the many unknown pitfalls and mistakes employers make when classifying positions.  Participants will discuss the subtleties of the regulations and the complex, yet common, business scenarios that will assist in determining exempt or nonexempt status.

PLEASE NOTE: This program will examine the contested increase in the salary level threshold.

This advanced workshop is designed for HR professionals who possess a basic understanding of the FLSA laws.  Participants should be prepared to dissect their exempt positions, and armed with new knowledge, assess if they are properly classified.
