Although the rules on exempt vs non-exempt employees has changed a few times in the past 10 years, overtime worked is, and has always been, overtime earned. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. But 1.5 time a workers hourly rate of pay is just the start of calculating overtime earned. This course is designed as a refresher on what hours and payments are considered in calculating overtime pay.

Why you should Attend: If your employee works more than 40 hrs in a workweek (or over 8 hrs in a day in some states) – they have earned overtime of at least 1.5 times their hourly rate of pay (HRP). Do you know all types of payments that carry an overtime premium? If not, Join Mark Schwartz in this informative webinar designed for the seasoned payroll professional to properly analyze compliance with overtime regulation, and help their CFO properly budget payroll expenses. You will also find the answers to the following questions, and more:
  • What hours worked qualify for paid wages, and which don’t. Which qualify for overtime premiums, and which don’t
  • What fringe benefits and supplemental payments should be counted toward the hourly rate of pay?
  • Are there any restrictions on setting work weeks?
  • How do you account for shift differentials, when an employee’s workweek changes, etc?
  • Do payments made after a regular pay day need to be applied to weeks wherein overtime was worked?
