The Fair Labour Standards Act (FLSA) is one of the most misunderstood employment laws in the country. Basically, it governs the payment of wages and who must be paid overtime.
To make things more confusing, the Department of Labour has implemented a number of exemptions to the requirement to pay overtime such as the White Collar Exemptions and the 7(i) exemption for retail and service establishments.
Areas Covered in the Session:
·The Primary Provisions of the Federal Labor Standards Act
·Tests to Determine if a Position Qualifies for a White Collar Exemption
·Other Exemptions Your Organization May Want to Consider
·Computing overtime pay for multiple pay rates
·Treatment of Meal Breaks, Travel, Training and Time Spent On-Call
·Minimum Wage Requirements by State and Contract
·Recordkeeping and Posting Requirements
·What's Going to Get You in Trouble?
·A Review of the New Regulations
After decades in limbo, regulations that clarify certain overtime pay practices have been released by the U.S. Department of Labor. The newly finalized rules explain how to calculate overtime pay for nonexempt salaried employees using the "fluctuating workweek" method.
Use of this method to calculate overtime pay currently affects only around 700,000 employees. But these rules "may encourage some employers to switch" to using it, said the DOL. The agency also expects that some employers will move hourly employees to salaried status to take advantage of the new rule.
One potential outcome of using the FWW method is lowering the cost of overtime pay. For that reason, when the rule was proposed, it was criticized by labor groups. In defending the rule, the DOL conceded that while the lower overtime pay scenario could happen, "the same employer could also reduce the employee's earnings by the exact same amount by lowering the employee's weekly rate of pay."
