FLSA Rules on Compensable Time and Overtime: The Regular Rate of Pay
26 August 2021 |1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT199
This webinar will discuss how to tackle the latest compliance challenges stemming from not paying properly for compensable time, miscalculations of overtime pay, and other missteps. We will focus on the DOL’s final rule providing clarification on how to determine employees’ regular rate of pay and what forms of payment employers can include and exclude in the overtime pay calculation.
Under both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and the California Labor Code the regular rate of pay is the rate an employer must use to pay overtime premiums to employees who work overtime hours. The regular rate of pay can change from workweek to workweek because it must reflect the per-hour value of all compensation the employee has earned.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
Although the Fair Labor Standards Act has been around a long time, it is one of the most frequently violated employment law – particularly determining what is compensable time, and how to calculate overtime correctly.
Employers fail to recognize what hours must be compensated and how the working hours should be compensated. Improper calculations can lead to employees being underpaid or even being paid too much, which can lead to legal liability exposure.
Topic covered in the session include:
- What time is “working time” and, therefore, must be used in an overtime calculation;
- How commissions factor into overtime payments;
- The rules that apply to fire protections and law enforcement personnel;
- What to include when determining total compensation;
- Legal methods of calculating the hourly rate;
- Various legal methods of paying overtime that can save your company money;
- Recordkeeping requirements;
- How to “fix” your errors when you discover they have been made; and
- How California rules for “rate of pay calculation” differ from the FLSA
Participants will have the opportunity to learn:
- FLSA regulations on what is, and what is not, compensable time
- Recent updates to the FLSA’s “Regular Rate of Pay”
- How to properly calculate overtime pay for non-exempt employees
- The recent changes to the FLSA’s salary basis and salary level tests for exempt employees
WHO WILL BENEFIT?
- HR professionals
- Payroll professionals
- Managers, Supervisors
