Supplemental Pay Under the FLSA

Wage and hour laws tend to be a nuanced and contentious area of the law, providing a trap for even the most well-intentioned but unwary of employers. The US Department of Labor has stepped up its enforcement efforts in this area in part by adding investigators. Wage and hour lawsuits are on the rise often end up costing employers into the multi-millions of dollars. In addition to the unpaid wages, you can end up owing the same amount in liquidated damages—that’s right, double the amount of unpaid straight time and overtime pay. If that’s not enough, as long as an employee wins even one penny of unpaid wages; you can also be on the hook for the employee’s attorney fees. Since many wage and hour cases are class action lawsuits, the amount of money damages can multiply exponentially. While employers have a basic understanding of wage payment issues, dealing with supplemental pay can present their own challenges.

Please join Janette Levey-Frisch as she helps you understand areas such as when you may and may not have to pay employees to get dressed and undressed (known as “donning and doffing” cases); when you do and do not have to pay them for time spent traveling; when you do and do not have to pay them for breaks or on-call time or even time spent breastfeeding, among many other areas of supplemental pay. By attending this session you can minimize your chances of DOL investigations and/or audits and wage and hour lawsuits.
