Fair Labor Standard Act in 2022: How to Avoid the Overtime Legal Pitfalls

The FLSA governs the payment of wages and who must be paid overtime. The Department of Labor has implemented a number of exemptions to the requirement to pay overtime such as the White-Collar Exemptions and the 7(i) exemption for retail and service establishments. The DOL also allows different ways of computing overtime pay, which makes FLSA one of the most misunderstood employment laws in the country.


Penalties for FLSA non-compliance include up to three years of back pay to employees who were paid incorrectly. Join us this August to learn how to comply with wage and hour laws from a Federal, state, and government contracting basis. You will also get an update on the most recent State Regulations on Wage and Hour issues.


The FLSA is a Federal Law, but employers must know that many states, municipalities, and any type of government contract may have their own rules regarding minimum wage and overtime. Maintaining compliance is critical to your business. Failing to do so can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
