Avoid Drawing Feds’ Scrutiny to Your Wage & Overtime Procedures


The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) allows a “white collar” exemption from minimum wage and overtime pay laws for eligible employees. Qualifications relate to job duties and minimum salary, so you must be sure your exempt employees meet those strict standards.

Employment attorney Mark Tabakman shows you how to stay out of the Department of Labor’s crosshairs in this detailed webinar. Tabakman reviews high-risk positions and the industries that have been consistently targeted by lawsuits for misclassification. He also previews proposed changes to FLSA exemptions. The burden is on you to justify any exemption—so don’t be caught with a weak defense!

After attending this information-packed session, you will know the basic principles of the white-collar exemption, the eligibility criteria, and industry-specific pitfalls for misclassification. Upgrade your wages & overtime know-how, and learn to craft a proactive and strategic approach to FLSA compliance. The white-collar exemption is a complex and nuanced legal matter, and Tabakman will show you the art of recognizing possible risk exposure—and teach you how to fix it before real trouble comes calling.
