This course discusses the requirements needed to determine if a worker is an exempt employee or a nonexempt employee under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
We start with a brief review of the terms “exempt” and “nonexempt”. From this we discuss the requirements for designating an employee exempt under the FLSA. This discussion includes the definition of the 4+ categories of exempt employees, blue collar workers and first responders. This leads into a conversation about the duties requirements for each of these types of classifications under the wage and hour rules. We then examine the requirements for paying an exempt employee including the salary basis rules and the salary level test. The salary level test will include the latest update available on the new salary levels being discussed by the Obama Administration. Finally we briefly review the various possible requirements on the state level for exempt employees
This course serves as a sound basis to assist human resources, payroll or finance professionals in determining how to properly classify an exempt employee and to understand the difference between exempt and nonexempt.
