Overtime lawsuits are on the rise. Employees are getting wiser to their rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and are realizing that their employers have been incorrectly designating them as exempt and, therefore, have not been paying them overtime they are due. They are also realizing that employers are failing to record “working time” correctly – resulting in significant underpayments to their employees. Additionally, even if the working time is accurately noted, employers failed to calculate overtime obligations correctly. Due to the frequent errors on employers’ part, many employees are grouping together to bring class actions or collective actions under the FLSA – making these suits more costly than ever.
Attending this webinar will help you understand what is “time worked”, exempt versus non-exempt status and how to calculate your employees' overtime correctly so to avoid these costly suits.
