On January 23, 2018, I presented a complimentary webinar on Overtime Exemptions for New York Employers. For those who couldn’t attend the live webinar, I’m happy to make it available for you to watch at your convenience.
Click here to watch the webinar now. (The webinar will start automatically, but it takes a minute or so for the presentation to begin.)
In the webinar, I discuss the most common overtime exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York law, including:
- Executive Exemption
- Administrative Exemption
- Professional Exemption
- Outside Sales Exemption
- Computer Employee Exemption
- Highly Compensated Employee Exemption
Why You Should Watch This Webinar
Most New York employers must ensure compliance with both the New York and federal overtime laws. Improperly classifying an employee as exempt can result in huge financial liabilities. Employees can recover not only the amount of overtime pay they should have received, but also an equal amount in liquidated damages. Plus, they can recover their attorney’s fees from the employer.
Employers with as few as one employee may have to pay overtime unless an exemption applies! And not all salaried employees qualify for exemptions!
The Overtime Exemptions for New York Employers webinar walks you through the various components of each of these categories of exemptions, specifically noting federal and New York State distinctions.
Learn where the duties tests differ between the FLSA and New York law. Find out what happens if an employee is exempt under one law but not the other. Get predictions on what changes may be coming up!
