Event Calendar / The Confusing Issue of “Working Time” And The Danger It Poses To Employers
Details & Time Frame
The Confusing Issue of “Working Time” And The Danger It Poses To Employers
The Confusing Issue of “Working Time” And The Danger It Poses To Employers

Many employers believe that “working time” are those hours from the official start of an employee’s shift until that shift is over. There are numerous activities that may constitute work time, although employers may not be aware of them. Incidental time spent by employees before or after their workday on activities, so-called preliminary and postliminary work, if sufficiently integrated with the principal duties is compensable. In other words, if the employee cannot perform his principal job without first undertaking the preliminary activity and then, at day’s end, the postliminary activity, the likelihood is that the time is compensable.

The donning and doffing of clothing may be compensable activities if integral and indispensable to an employee’s work. There are also issues relating to travel time and its compensability in different scenarios. Attendance at lectures, meetings, training programs, and similar activities may also be compensable unless all of four criteria are met: The other key factor is whether there is any employer compulsion to engage in the activity or come in early to accomplish the task(s).

The determination of what is and is not working time is a real danger confronting employers in a society that has seen a geometric explosion of Fair Labor Standards Act class actions with devastating monetary consequences for the employer/business community.

There are, however, answers. Employers must learn what kinds of “side” activities constitute work time and how, with careful planning, this time can be controlled and its compensation minimized. That is what you will learn in this Webinar.
