Overtime Law 2012
Find out if you’re at risk — and what to do about it

Overtime Law 2012:
Who’s Exempt, Who’s Not?

“The number of small businesses facing overtime lawsuits has exploded.”
-- Fortune magazine

From Starbucks … to Google … to the rock band Motley Crue.

Businesses of ALL shapes and sizes are being forced to pay out big bucks for misclassifying employees and failing to pay proper overtime.

Is your company vulnerable? Department of Labor officials estimate that more than 70% of employers are out of compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)!

Don’t get caught in the DOL’s growing enforcement net! Find out if you’re at risk — and what to do about it — with a recording of Overtime Law 2012: Who’s Exempt, Who’s Not?

If you’re like most employers, your payroll is strewn with misclassified employees — ticking time bombs that could cost you a fortune. And the Obama administration’s Department of Labor is cracking down on overtime law violations.

Anniken Davenport, Esq., who literally wrote the book on wage-and-hour compliance, offers practical, step-by-step FLSA compliance advice.

Learn how to master the ins and outs of this complex law. You’ll discover:

  • How to correctly classify employees as either nonexempt (eligible for overtime) or exempt (not eligible), while sidestepping the triggers for lawsuits and fines.
  • Why allowing exempt employees to take on extra work can be dangerous.
  • Special circumstances when you must pay hourly workers for travel time, on-call hours, meal breaks and training periods.
  • How to control after hours work in the era of email, smartphones and PDAs.
  • When the law allows you to dock the pay of salaried employees.
  • The single most effective way to discipline employees who work unauthorized overtime.
  • What to do if you’ve been misclassifying employees as exempt and need to fix the problem before DOL knocks on the door.
  • What may soon require you to rethink using independent contractors.

When the DOL rewrote the federal overtime laws a few years ago, the goal was to reduce the confusion over exempt vs. nonexempt status. But as even a top Labor official admitted, “We thought [the new regulation] would fix that. It really hasn’t.”

The result: More confusion and more lawsuits. Wal-Mart agreed to settle a series of overtime lawsuits for half a billion dollars!

Find and defuse your payroll mistakes before they trigger a lawsuit or Department of Labor investigation.
