The U.S. Department of Labor is actively clamping down on the improper use of exemptions that allow employers to avoid paying overtime to employees. They are scrutinizing employers’ use of the managerial, administrative, professional, sales, and computer professional exemptions. Mistakes in this area can cost employers thousands of dollars in back pay and fines and a permanent readjustment of how employees are to be paid. Additionally, the IRS and USDOL are also working to minimize the use of independent contractors under the premise that these people should generally be considered employees. This webinar will help employers better understand the proper application of classifications.
