Handling Supplemental Pay Under the FLSA

By TrainHR (other events)

Thursday, November 8 2018 10:00 AM 11:00 AM

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Today's wage and hour environment has become one filled with peril for employers who do not understand how to deal with the Fair Labor Standards Act. The US Department of Labor has stepped up its enforcement efforts by adding investigators, forming an alliance with the American Bar Association in order to refer cases and creating a smart phone application that allows your employees to report their time directly to the USDOL.

Wage and hour lawsuits are costing employers into the multi-millions of dollars. Most companies have a basic understanding of how to deal with wages, however, often issues arise when dealing with supplemental pay. This session will help you understand areas such as when employees have to be paid to get dressed and undressed; when you have to pay them to be on an airplane and when you don't; what breaks need to be paid and what breaks don't need to be paid; why you have to pay for breastfeeding; and other areas of supplemental pay. Reduce your chances of being investigated by making sure you pay practices are in compliance.
