This new webinar clears the confusion, helping you stay compliant even as exemption issues continue to cost other contractors hundreds of millions of dollars a year.

In this 90-minute webinar, wage and hour expert Shlomo Katz helps contractors avoid exemptions mistakes that can lead to debarment from federal contracts. You’ll discover strategies that help you avoid pitfalls like “automatic” exemptions that aren’t always automatic and exemption rules that are frequently misunderstood.

How to avoid—and fix—violations. You’ll learn best practices for classifying employees in compliance with the FLSA and SCA, as well as what to do if you’ve misclassified them. You’ll also learn about possible changes coming from the Department of Labor later this year. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

  • What are the requirements for exemption?
  • Are salaried, highly-paid or very important employees automatically exempt?
  • What may change if DOL’s proposed regulations take effect?
  • What are the consequences of misclassifying employees as exempt?
  • What is a wage-hour compliance audit — and should you do one?
