Five Things To Consider Before Auditing Your FLSA Compliance

Performing periodic self-audits for wage and hour compliance can go a long way in helping employers mitigate their legal risks and ensure their policies and practices are up to date. But if a self-audit is conducted without a proper game plan, including buy-in from senior leadership, it can actually magnify an employer’s Fair Labor Standards Act risks rather than mitigate them. This web workshop will identify the five most important considerations – and the strategic decisions that go with them – for employers to understand and address before undertaking any self-audit of their FLSA compliance and risk.

Overtime and the “Regular Rate” – Avoiding Common Pitfalls

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, covered nonexempt employees must be paid overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 in any given workweek, with the overtime rate set by law at no less than one and one-half times the employee’s “regular rate” of pay. But what exactly is the “regular rate” of pay? Does the regular rate include performance, referral, or holiday bonuses? What about employer awards programs? When must the cost of benefits – or cash in lieu of benefits – be included? In this web workshop, CWC staff experts explain the FLSA’s “regular rate” rules and discuss how employers can avoid the most common overtime rate pitfalls
