The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) may be the single most challenging of employment and labor laws for HR. It is now more critical than ever that you understand your compliance obligations under the FLSA. As the major provisions of the FLSA are concerned with minimum wage rates, overtime payments, and equal pay, failure to comply with wage & hour laws may result in dire consequences. Employers may be required to pay the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees and court costs. Employers may also face the prospect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments.
In this practical webinar, you will discuss ways to avoid non-exempt overtime calculation mistakes and examine the difference between compensable and non-compensable time, paid and unpaid break times, and more. You will also explore the most common mistakes employers make regarding wage and hour issues.
Upon course completion, you will be able to:
- Discuss the key provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act
- Address meal breaks, travel, training, on-call time, and outside sales under the FLSA
- Compute overtime pay and understand the “regular rate of pay”
- Distinguish between the public and private sectors
- Maintain accurate recordkeeping
- Distinguish between FLSA and state wage and hour laws

What is a webinar?
A webinar is simply a seminar that you attend online. You either watch a live video feed of the speaker or listen to the speaker through your computer, tablet or phone’s audio. You see the speaker’s slides, videos, and other presentation materials on your screen.
Can I ask questions during the webinar?
Yes. During the live webinar, you may submit questions and comments and the speaker will respond verbally. For a recorded webinar, your questions will be emailed to the speaker. You will typically receive a response from the speaker within two business days.
Can I attend using a tablet or smartphone?
Yes. You may attend a webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone.
If I can’t attend a webinar live, can I view the recording later?
Yes. Shortly after each live program ends, we send all webinar registrants a link to the webinar recording. You can view the recording as many times as you like after the live webinar for up to 12 months.
What is an on-demand webinar?
An on-demand webinar is a previously recorded webinar that you may view at any time after your purchase for up to 12 months.
Can I stop a recorded webinar and start it later at the same point?
