Figuring out who’s exempt and who’s not is just one of every manager’s wage/hour challenges. How about the regular rate for overtime? Prevailing Wage? Mobile devices after hours—the list of ways you can get into trouble seems endless. How do you really know if your managers and supervisors are following your guidelines? Mistakenly classifying an employee as an independent contractor can result in significant fines and penalties. The Department of Labor together with the IRS has cracked down on misclassification.

With new regulations, you want to make sure you’re in compliance with all levels of your staff. We discuss compensation at the hourly and salary levels, DOL definitions and exemption categories. We will talk about the new generations and how their work preferences fit into the wage and hour labyrinth. Don’t forget the most common myths!
