Know How to Calculate FLSA Overtime Pay Correctly and Avoid Legal Risks

For non-exempt employees, overtime is computed under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), keeping in mind certain overtime rules for Federal employees. FLSA Overtime pay is determined by multiplying straight time pay of the employee by all the overtime hours worked up him/her. To this, add one-half of the hourly regular rate of pay of employee. All kinds of overtime work that is approved/ordered or suffered/permitted need to be compensated.

Every employer knows the basic premise - you have to pay time and a half for all hours worked over forty in a workweek. As simple as this sounds, there are many legal issues regarding how to calculate overtime correctly that can trap the unwary. No employer gets it right all the time. As a result, FLSA litigation has exploded over the years. Suits are usually brought through class or collective actions making them very costly. But, you can protect your company from getting sued!

In this webinar by expert speaker, Susan Fahey Desmond, one of America's leading business lawyers for labor and employment law, you'll learn how to correctly calculate overtime under FLSA. Get expert insights on legal risks and court interpretations to avoid making some costly mistakes.
