Calculating Overtime: Stay Ahead of the Latest Regulations and Get It Right Every Time

Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 1pm ET           Duration: 90 minutes

Calculating overtime is as simple as time-and-a-half, right? You know that’s the common misconception, and that it’s completely wrong. Calculating overtime correctly is much more complex than it seems. But even experienced payroll professionals get it wrong more often than they’d care to admit.

This program covers the latest overtime regulations to be sure your team gets it right every time.  (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

That’s a problem because mistakes can be extremely costly. A single violation can equal tens of thousands of dollars in federal fines, possible jail time, or both.

The bottom line: You must get it right EVERY TIME.

In this 90-minute program, nationally recognized payroll expert Vicki Lambert will cover the right way to calculate overtime and how to avoid the common pitfalls that that lead to costly trouble.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will learn:

  • What counts as “overtime” under the FLSA—it’s not what most people think…
  • How to calculate the “regular rate of pay” (if you simply multiply the employee’s hourly rate by 1.5, you’re likely breaking the law)
  • The eight (very narrow) exceptions to inclusion of payments in the regular rate
  • When you must include a bonus in calculating your employee’s overtime pay
  • When and how to use the weighted average method to calculate overtime
  • How to calculate the overtime premium
  • About the Portal-to-Portal Act and how it affects overtime
