Wage and Hour Compliance: A DOL Update and Ways to Avoid Common Overtime Liability Landmines

Speaking Engagements

6.12.23 7:30 AM

Rob Boonin will serve as a featured presenter at the SHRM 2023 Annual Conference taking place in Las Vegas from June 11-14. Boonin's presentation, "Wage and Hour Compliance: A DOL Update and Ways to Avoid Common Overtime Liability Landmines," will focus on how the DOL is changing the rules governing overtime pay and ways employers can minimize their exposure to FLSA violations. 

Over the past year, the DOL has been grappling with changes to who may be treated as independent contractors, who may be exempt from being paid overtime, how tipped employees may take the tip credit, and other initiatives that are critical for employers to understand and respond to. This program will not only address these issues, but also identify some of the errors all too commonly made with respect to overtime compliance, despite the best of intentions. Knowing more on both of these fronts and understanding what needs to be audited will allow employers to better conform to the complex rules regarding overtime, and thereby avoid avoidable and substantial liability resulting from noncompliance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the new FLSA regulations and the latest with respect to DOL enforcement initiatives under the FLSA.
  • Understanding common mistakes employers too often make with respect to FLSA compliance.
  • Learning steps employers can take to avoid, or at least minimize their exposure to, common overtime pay violations, through changes in practices and audits.
