Top Ten Compensable Time Issues for Non-Exempt Employees

JDSupra (04/12/2012)

Employers must ensure that nonexempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act are properly compensated for all hours worked, including overtime. They also must be compensated for time they spend waiting for an assignment, because they are not free to leave. Time spent at seminars, lectures, and training programs is compensable if their attendance is required, whether during or after normal work hours. Nonexempt employees also must be compensated for off-the-clock time if they begin working before the regular workday commences, even if the time is not recorded on the time sheet, and work brought home and e-mails answered before or after the regular workday are compensable as well. To avoid violations of overtime requirements, employers should ensure that nonexempt employees do not perform work outside their regular work schedule without prior approval.
