Exempt v. Non-Exempt: Overtime & Employer Liability in the Workplace - 1 CLE hour

Wage and hour law, particularly related to overtime, is undergoing a sea change.  Classifying a worker as “exempt,” and thus not entitled to overtime no matter how many hours worked in a week, has become much more difficult with the spread of non-traditional employment relationships, including the use of independent contractors, outsourcing, subcontractors, and franchisees. If an employer gets the classification wrong, it is liable for back pay and large penalties. The US Department of Labor is also on the verge of issuing new regulations that will substantially revise the salary threshold entitling even salaried workers to overtime.  Advising clients on these major developments is essential to keeping them compliant and reducing their liability. This program will provide you with a practical guide to wage and hour developments focusing on overtime and how it impacts what your clients pay their employees and how they do business.
