Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) al Non-Exempt employees who work more than 40 hours in a week are entitled to overtime pay. Overtime pay is 1.5 times the employee’s regular hourly rate for all hours in excess of 40. The concept is simple, but applying it is anything but easy.

Non-discretionary bonuses and other supplemental pay, such as shift differential pay must be included in an employee’s regular pay rate when calculating overtime pay. Travel time, on-call time and certain time spent before and after one’s official shift are often “time worked” and must therefore be included in regular pay, which in turn determines overtime pay.

In this webinar, we will discuss these and other challenges involved in calculating overtime pay.  Here’s why you don’t want to miss it:

In fact, in the last fiscal year alone, the United States Department of Labor collected $304 million in back wages. If you owe any back wages, you could be liable for liquidated damages in the same amount, plus the employee’s legal fees.

This webinar will show you how to calculate overtime correctly so that you can stay off the DOL’s radar.
