Nowadays, there has been a dramatic increase in class action lawsuits and DOL inspections, most of which are started by a single employee. And if, there are employees doing the same kind of work as the single employee, the scope of inquiry and possible exposure will rise almost exponentially. On allegations involving unpaid "working time," employers are often caught unawares because they do not have a strong sense of when certain pre-shift and post-shift activities may rise to the level of working time.
Though an employer does not need to know all the legal nuances involved in these matters, they must know the "art" of recognizing when such issues (and possible exposures) may be present, and how they can be rectified before real trouble arises. This webinar by expert speaker Mark Tabakman will teach you that "art," analyze problem areas, and suggest proactive, strategic protocols and policies to address these issues.
You will learn when certain preliminary and postliminary functions-functions undertaken before or after work-can possibly be classified as compensable working time. You will get access to a virtual "law book" written in an easy-to-read style to provide employers and HR professionals with a basic understanding of what the flashpoint issues are and when they may become presenting problems. Attendees will get practical advice accompanied by just enough legalities analysis to ensure that they will be able to spot problem areas and know how to fix them.
This session will examine the following areas where calculating overtime is mostly a challenge:
