Changes in the composition of the workforce, the location where work is performed, how people work with technology, and how employers hire workers in the first instance are all factors that have scrambled the traditional categories of exempt versus nonexempt employees. It is no easy task for employers to determine who is entitled to overtime pay and who is not. Managerial, sales and administrative responsibilities often blur in an environment where the workplace is constantly changing to respond to changes in industry. Familiar patterns are gone and this creates a problem for employers. They risk substantial litigation and financial exposure if they do not properly classify workers. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to properly classifying workers in a shifting work environment and best practices for avoiding liability. Part 1 of 2.
