Every employer must properly classify all employees as “exempt” or “non-exempt” for overtime purposes. If an employer gets it wrong, it exposes itself to litigation, Department of Labor complaints, and substantial financial liability for unpaid overtime. Classification is no easy matter of separating employees into “manager” and “non-manager” categories.

Nebraska Activity #126881, 1.0 hour CLE

Every employer must properly classify all employees as “exempt” or “non-exempt” for overtime purposes. If an employer gets it wrong, it exposes itself to litigation, Department of Labor complaints, and substantial financial liability for unpaid overtime.  Classification is no easy matter of separating employees into “manager” and “non-manager” categories.  Moreover, the changing nature of the workplace, including how technology allows us to work, has significantly altered when a work day begins and ends, and thus the overtime payments to which non-exempt employees are entitled.  This program will provide you with a real-world guide to the rules and principles governing worker classification, trends in DOL audits and private independent contractor litigation, and best practices for avoiding liability.

Day 1 – August 11, 2016:

  • Review of new wage and hour regulations, including changes to salary threshold for overtime purposes
  • Trends in hybrid federal/state litigation
  • “Fissured” industries and non-traditional employer-employee arrangements
  • Independent contractors, subcontractors, and franchised employees
  • Review of DOL enforcement priorities and trends in settlements and penalties

Raymond W. Bertrand is a partner in the San Diego office of Paul, Hastings LLP, where he represents employers in a wide range of employment matters.  His litigation practice includes wage and hour, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, leaves of absence, contract disputes, wrongful discharge, whistleblower, trade secrets and other types of employment-related matters. In the wage and hour context, he also represents clients before the U.S. Department of Labor and state regulators. He also authors the wage and hour section of Matthew Bender’s“California Labor & Employment Bulletin” and has authored various articles on wage and hour matters.  Mr. Bertrand received his B.A. from State University of New York Binghamton and his J.D. from Albany Law School.
