OnDemand Webinar (86 minutes)

Make sure you know if white-collar exemptions are being met at your company.Many employers think that by paying an employee a salary and designating her as a manager, she is overtime exempt. But employers who do so without taking steps to ensure that they are compliant with all the overtime exemption requirements run the risk of incurring significant liability. Employers must ensure that they comply with federal (and state) requirements regarding overtime exemptions to ensure that their employees are properly classified as overtime exempt. This topic will address the basics regarding the duties requirements for federal white-collar exemptions, in addition to salary basis and salary threshold requirements.
