FLSA Administrative and Executive Exemptions: Avoiding, Auditing and Correcting Misclassifications
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide employment counsel with an in-depth examination of the FLSA’s administrative and executive exemptions, two of the most difficult compliance challenges and most frequently litigated classifications. The panel will outline best practices to help companies follow best employment practices to avoid jeopardizing exemptions that lead to FLSA misclassification claims.
- Overview of FLSA minimum wage and overtime pay requirements
- Executive exemption tests
- Administrative exemption tests
- Self-audit strategies and techniques
- Steps for correcting misclassification errors and limiting exposure to claims
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What supervisory duties must a position encompass to qualify for the executive exemption?
- How have courts interpreted the “discretion and independent judgment” factor of the administrative exemption?
- What corrective actions should companies take after uncovering a misclassification?
- What effect might the proposed DOL rule to implement President Obama’s directive on the white collar exemptions have on employers?
