Details & Time Frame
Determining Which Employees are Exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act
Virtual Event Virtual Event
Overview : The webinar will cover how to determine exemptions under the DOL's regulations and what the DOL will look for during an audit or investigation. In addition to the three most commonly used exemption - managerial, administrative, and professional, we will cover other exemptions such as the computer professional and the Motor Carrier Act.

Why should you attend: Although the Fair Labor Standards Act has been around a long time, it is one of the most frequently violated employment law. How to determine whether an individual meets an exemption is often no small task. And, if you are wrong, you typically do not have time records and back pay calculations will inevitably be a nightmare. Unfortunately, even if you are right, you may inadvertently lose the exemption by making improper deductions.
