California Employer Advisor Webinar
Live webinar coming Wednesday, August 29, 2012
10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon (Pacific)
Exempt or non-exempt? It's a question that HR professionals across the state often struggle with.
And it's no wonder why: California's wage and hour rules are voluminous, and the devil in the in the details when it comes to ensuring that you've properly classified an employee as exempt from overtime.
It's not enough to rely on the job title or job description. Discerning whether a particular position is truly exempt from overtime under California and federal law requires you to know the California wage and hour rules, and how to apply those rules to each position so you can correctly determine whether overtime compensation may be owed.
Don't miss our webinar on August 29, specifically for California HR professionals, when our presenter will use real-life examples to illustrate when an employee classified as exempt may in fact be entitled to overtime pay under state and federal law.
He'll also provide tips on how to tell if you've incorrectly misclassified non-exempt employees as independent contractors--and what you should do immediately to correct your mistakes.
- How to judge exempt versus nonexempt status in California
- Common misconceptions about California exemption classifications
- The checklist of duties white-collar employees must perform to meet the definition of being exempt from overtime under state and federal law
- How to properly apply the salary basis test here in California
- Recent cases alleging exemption misclassifications - and how to avoid getting caught up in the same litigation trap as the employers in those cases did
- Tell-tale signs that an independent contractor is really your employee and how to fix your mistake
