Overview

BONUS: When you register, you’ll receive a free copy of our Checklist for Unpaid Internship Programs to make sure you remain in compliance before bringing in unpaid talent. Summertime is the perfect time to bring interns into your company. While internship programs can provide advantages for both employers and interns, many internships risk running afoul of state and federal laws. Employers can end up on the hook for significant amounts in unpaid wages, employment taxes, and penalties. Use this handy resource to make sure you remain in compliance before bringing in unpaid talent.

What changes can we expect from the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) in 2022?

A new overtime threshold. The WHD will revisit (for the third time in recent years) the salary threshold for overtime eligibility. A new standard is certain to increase the overtime threshold in light of increasing wage pressures and wage compression. An attempt to index the threshold to inflation is also likely to be part of the new regulation.

Joint employer status. Work will begin on a new rule seeking to broaden the definition of “joint employer” and expand liability for many employers, especially those using the franchise model. The effort will be undertaken in concert with a similar effort by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

The Davis-Bacon Act. The DOL recently submitted a proposal to the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to update the 1931 Davis-Bacon Act, which requires workers on federally funded construction projects to receive prevailing wages and benefits. The final rule could redefine how employers determine what constitutes “prevailing wages” that must be paid when the federal government finances an infrastructure project.

To stay up-to-date on these potential changes and to uncover tips and tricks for remaining in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), join us for an intensive, 2-day master class that will help you understand all the ins and outs of the FLSA, overtime, and other wage and hour issues.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will understand:

  • Federal regulatory, legislative, and court ruling hot spots and what the practical impact of new standards, rules, and more will be on your workplace;
  • Employee classification—how to navigate the duties tests to cost-effectively determine which employees should be exempt and nonexempt or whether your workers are independent contractors or employees;
  • The ins and outs of calculating overtime in compliance with the new overtime regulations;
  • Pay equity audits—how to analyze and correct disparate compensation practices by analyzing groupings by job title, job family, pay grade, overtime exemption status, and more;
  • FLSA timekeeping, hours of work, and recordkeeping myth-busters—top pitfalls for staying off state DOL and federal WHD enforcers’ audit radars; and
  • Post-pandemic planning—wage and hour issues to keep in mind in a post-pandemic world.
