FLSA Compensable Time Issues That Can Trip You Up Big Time
Compensable time issues under the FLSA can trip up even the most savvy professional. The key is in understanding what qualifies as compensable time? The FLSA is clear on this, but oftentimes employers aren’t. Waiting time, on-call time, rest and meal periods, sleeping time, lectures, meetings and training programs, travel time, travel that is all in a day’s work, travel away from home, etc. are all examples of on and off the clock issues that employers deal with every day. Problems occur when employers fail to recognize and count certain hours worked as compensable time. Getting it wrong can be costly in terms of potential fines and possible litigation. Combine this with the issues of employees working off the clock after hours on smart phones, etc., and the potential liability for unpaid overtime this can cause and you have the so-called perfect storm of legal issues.
Please join Melissa Fleischer, attorney at law, as she explains the compensable and overtime rules step-by-step and gives examples of the problems employers face while also offering practical solutions that will keep you in compliance with the FLSA overtime and compensable time requirements.
