Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar on employee overtime calculation will help you understand what is “time worked”, exempt versus non-exempt status and how to calculate your employees' overtime correctly so to avoid these costly suits.

Why Should You Attend:

Overtime lawsuits are on the rise. Employees are getting wiser to their rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and are realizing that their employers have been incorrectly designating them as exempt and, therefore, have not been paying them overtime they are due. They are also realizing that employers are failing to record “working time” correctly – resulting in significant underpayments to them. Additionally, even if the working time is accurately noted, employers fail to calculate overtime obligations correctly. Even when employers pay overtime that is legally permissible, they may not be using legal methods to cut their overtime liability. Due to the frequent errors on employers’ part, many employees are grouping together to bring class actions or collective actions under the FLSA – making these suits more costly than ever.

Topic Background:

Although the Fair Labor Standards Act has been around for a long time, it is the most frequently violated employment law. Violations are rarely intentional. Employers misclassify employees as exempt or fail to calculate working time accurately. Misclassifications can result in severe back pay issues. Calculating overtime incorrectly can often result in overpayments or underpayments.
