Administering Pay: Compliance Essentials and How to Avoid Costly FLSA Fines and Penalties - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Use this on-demand expert-led webinar to learn how to properly administer pay in compliance with the FLSA and avoid the risk of costly fines, penalties, and collective actions.

As the calendar year ends, many organizations are planning on providing holiday bonuses for their employees. But, how should nondiscretionary bonuses to be factored into non-exempt employees’ overtime pay? And, how can you tell which bonuses are really nondiscretionary in the first place? To properly navigate the FLSA, it’s important to know how these payments can be interpreted—especially if there’s an expectation of getting bonuses among employees—and the FLSA technicalities that may apply. 

FLSA regulatory missteps can result in employee lawsuits (both individual and collective actions) against organizations for failing to comply with seemingly clear-cut minimum wage or overtime pay requirements. And, these are often the result of simple mistakes. Properly classifying employees, knowing the rules on meal and rest breaks, and correct payment for off-the-clock work—these are just some of the issues that, if mishandled, can trigger a lawsuit. And if a lawsuit succeeds, your company could be owing back pay plus attorneys’ fees.

It’s vital for employers to be aware of and ensure they are complying with FLSA rules. Organizations should conduct a regular self-audit and review these rules with an eye on their own policies.

Use this on-demand webinar for comprehensive guidance on avoiding legal headaches when administering pay to ensure FLSA compliance.

You’ll learn:

  • Why there are more successful lawsuits for wage and hour violations than for discrimination or retaliation
  • How to properly classify employees—and common errors you could be making right now that may lead to lawsuits, costly penalties, and fines
  • How to ensure proper payment for overtime of nonexempt employees—whether their work time has been approved or not
  • Whether time spent attending meetings or training is ever considered “off-the-clock work”
  • The difference between discretionary and nondiscretionary bonuses or gifts and how that plays into pay
  • When meal and rest breaks may need to be paid
  • How to properly calculate the rate of overtime pay
  • How to navigate reimbursement of work-related expenses for workers paid at minimum wage
  • Best practices for reviewing and self-auditing to ensure FLSA pay administration compliance
  • And much more!
