    Updates on pay equity legislative trends and the practical impact of Congress’ proposed Paycheck Fairness Act and WAGE Equity Act

    The increased risk of class and collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which could result in financial liability into the millions of dollars

    - How to maneuver sensitive salary communication conversations that you should have when converting exempt workers to nonexempt status
    - How bonuses factor into the new salary threshold for overtime exemption
    - How to correctly calculate overtime pay in compliance with applicable FLSA overtime regulations
    - How to analyze required duties tests for each job to ensure that your employees meet the salary and duties tests required for overtime exemption
