This webinar will provide a comprehensive understanding of the provisions of the FLSA.
You will learn the proper calculation of overtime pay, gain an understanding of what is considered hours worked, what to do when state and federal laws differ, when employees must be compensated for training, travel time, meal breaks, and on-call status.
Why should you Attend:
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly referred to as the Wage and Hour Act, was passed in 1938 and since then has been amended many times.
The major provisions of the FLSA are concerned with minimum wage rates and overtime payments, child labor, and equal pay.
The US Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division, oversees federal labor laws. Additionally, State DOLs administer state labor laws. Failure to comply with Wage & Hour laws may result in the employer paying the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees and court costs, plus the prospect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments. Therefore, Wage & Hour compliance is of the utmost importance.
