A Little Info About What's to Come

Paying Overtime Under the FLSA: Part 1

This webinar discusses how to calculate overtime under the FLSA rules for nonexempt employees, including definitions of overtime and calculation examples. This is the first of a two-part series that will help better understand the, sometimes confounding, requirements and procedures involved in overtime calculation.

Calculating overtime pay for nonexempt employees sounds so simple. Common folklore says to simply count the hours the employee works beyond 40 hours a week. Then, multiply that by 1.5 times the hourly pay rate and you’re done right? Not so fast! The truth is that overtime rules and the mathematics required to arrive at the correct calculation can be extremely tricky.

Penalties for overtime violations can be severe with the possibility of fines, imprisonment or both! Add civil suits to the mix and the results can be devastating to any business no matter how large or small! And just to make it interesting, most states use the same definition to calculate overtime as the FLSA does. So, one error can earn you double the penalties. This webinar will provide best practices related to nonexempt employee calculations.
