FLSA 2024: Ensuring Compliance with the Wage and Hour Laws




Course description:

Many employers believe that if their employees agree to certain pay arrangements or agree to be classified as independent contractors, there is no violation of the law. This, however, is not the case.

Employees cannot agree to waive their rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act. For example, offering your employees time off or additional benefits in place of overtime pay is still an FLSA violation—even if your employees sign a written contract to that effect.

The FLSA, and only the FLSA, determines the employer’s FLSA obligations. Even when an employee willingly goes along with, or even requests, an illegal pay arrangement s/he can still sue the employer for FLSA violations and recover any back pay s/he is owed under the law, in addition to keeping the extra pay and benefits he already pocketed under the illegal compensation system, and additional amounts in liquidated damages. If that’s not enough, you may be on the hook for your employee’s legal fees too!
