FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT (FLSA) - What Supervisors Need to Know
In this FLSA training, learn the do’s and don’ts of Fair Labor Standards Act (from exempt to nonexempt, to independent contractor versus employee-employer relationship) and start avoiding the landmines.
Why Should You Attend:
The FLSA is a basic regulation that focuses on many areas – from minimum wage to overtime to rules about exempt and non-exempt classifications to child labour and recordkeeping. This webinar will help you sort out the do’s and don’ts to ensure compliance. Even if you have an HR department to sort out the issues, you, the supervisor, are still responsible for ensuring you are paying employees correctly. And deducting time from time off banks correctly. We will also explore suggested pay policies you may want to consider to help you ensure consistent administration of FLSA rules within the workplace.
