Who's Who: Classification Rules for Exempt and Non-Exempt Employees

Presented by  Audrina Lange, Community Outreach and Resource Planning Specialist

US Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division

Gone are the days when managers could simply sort employees into hourly or salaried groups. A misclassification can be disastrous and result in charges of "wage theft" per USDOL regulations.  Did you know that damages may exceed loss wages and include liquidated damages which double amount owed to employees?  In this lunch and learn session, Audrina Lange will walk attendees through best practices to ensure your organization accurately classifies your employees.  Audrina will cover the following topics:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and classifications
  • Difference between exempt and non-exempt employees
  • Salary basis test
  • Six exempt classifications per FLSA
  • The Duties Test
  • Job evaluations and interviews
  • New Overtime rules
  • Rules of paid versus unpaid time for nonexempt workers

Join our partner UAFS Center for Economic Development for this lunch-and-learn event on October 18 as USDOL Specialist Audrina Lange explains the FLSA rules for classifying exempt and non-exempt positions, as well as how classification impacts benefits such as overtime compensation.

This session is just $49 which includes lunch.
