Training Overview

Are you making these top 10 FLSA mistakes? Fix them for 2023.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) frequently trips up managers and human resources professionals. With new classification rules in effect for 2023, you must revisit the requirements and ensure that your organization complies.

You need to understand how to classify your team members correctly:

  • Exempt vs. non-exempt
  • Independent contractors vs. employees

You must also determine what time is compensable, including whether your organization should pay employees for working remotely outside of business hours or simply being available for calls, text messages, and emails.
