Every employer must properly classify all employees as “exempt” or “non-exempt” for overtime purposes. If an employer gets it wrong, it exposes itself to litigation, Department of Labor complaints, and substantial financial liability for unpaid overtime.  Classification is no easy matter of separating employees into “manager” and “non-manager” categories.  Moreover, the changing nature of the workplace, including how technology allows us to work, has significantly altered when a work day begins and ends, and thus the overtime payments to which non-exempt employees are entitled.  This program will provide you with a real-world guide to the rules and principles governing worker classification, trends in DOL audits and private independent contractor litigation, and best practices for avoiding liability.

Day 1 – August 11, 2016:

• Review of new wage and hour regulations, including changes to salary threshold for overtime purposes
• Trends in hybrid federal/state litigation
• “Fissured” industries and non-traditional employer-employee arrangements 
• Independent contractors, subcontractors, and franchised employees
• Review of DOL enforcement priorities and trends in settlements and penalties

Day 2 – August 12, 2016:

• Determining when an employee has managerial or administrative functions
• Treatment of “inside” and “outside” sales people
• Smartphones, technology and the “constant communications” rule
• Working remotely – when does the workday begin and end? 
• How to handle meals and rest time  
• Donning and doffing of uniforms
• Off-the-clock time
