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 #126883, 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.
