Common Misconceptions in HR

July 24

Dispel common HR misconceptions by learning the important principles.

Many employers suffer from misconceptions about the legal protections that employees have under the law. As a result, they risk liability for hundreds of thousands of dollars if a disgruntled employee should file suit. This topic will help those responsible for administering the human resource function dispel those misconceptions by learning the important legal principles. We will explain why ‘independent contractor’ is not just a label that you can pin on a worker, and why paying an employee a salary does not exempt that employee from the right to overtime. We will also discuss the FLSA ban on giving workers compensatory time in lieu of paid overtime. We explore in depth the need to identify legitimate reasons for discharge decisions, in light of the standards that the courts apply in deciding discrimination cases.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to define the salary basis test under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
  • You will be able to discuss at-will employment.
  • You will be able to explain why you need a good reason to discharge an at-will employee.
  • You will be able to identify the white-collar exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
