Exempt vs. Non-Exempt Under the Fair Labor Standards Act: What Engineering Companies Need to Know
Speaker: Jason Schwartz of Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher, LLP
Recorded: March 24, 2011
Length: 90 minutes

All engineering firms face the issue of how to properly classify their employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) for purposes of determining who is, and is not, entitled to overtime pay. Determining whether an employee is exempt from the FLSA's overtime provisions or non-exempt can be challenging for engineering firms, and mistakes often lead to expensive litigation.

To address this issue, ACEC presents a timely on-line education program to examine common problem areas and pitfalls under FLSA, and steps that firms can take to avoid them. Presented by Jason Schwartz of the law firm of Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher — one the nation's leading authorities on employment law — the program is tailored to engineering firms and the highly specialized and technical staff they employ. Major elements of the program include:

  • Key basics of complying with the FLSA's overtime provisions, reviewing each of the exempt categories;
  • Going over actual examples of jobs in engineering firms that have presented challenges in classification;
  • And providing fundamental principles that employers and their HR directors can use in helping to determine the exempt or non-exempt status of their employees.

The program also addresses key state law compliance issues that can create significant liability for firms — for example, meal and rest break issues in California.

This is a must-do opportunity for firms to review and update their HR policies to ensure they're in compliance and to minimize the heavy financial consequences that can affect your bottom line.
