Recent Fair Labor Standards Act Developments, Including the Bush Administration's Regulations
Tuesday, September 16, 2003 – 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, P.L.C.
Questions about overtime, about who is exempt, and what is compensable time under the Fair Labor Standards Act continue to make life difficult for employers. Litigation in this area - often in the form of private multi-plaintiff lawsuits - has skyrocketed, thus increasing significantly the costs associated with noncompliance. The recently proposed revisions to the “white collar” exemptions raise new questions - and possible problems. On the other hand, these same proposals leave many of the overtime rules unchanged and as troublesome as ever.
The focus of the MORNING UPDATE will be avoiding liability now and in the future under the FLSA. Included will be a discussion of the proposed changes in the exemption rules and what impact they will have on employers. Practical guidance for achieving compliance and avoiding litigation will also be provided. Cost is only $20 per person; please RSVP by September 12, 2003 to Virginia Herrick , 313-496-7548 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
