Curbing Unauthorized Overtime

Curbing Unauthorized Overtime

Decrease your overtime liability and prevent unauthorized overtime – especially in this time of change. Year after year, one of the most challenging tasks employers face is keeping track of the hours their nonexempt employees work and correctly paying any required overtime premium. When unauthorized overtime occurs, labor costs skyrocket, and businesses face a budgeting nightmare. And when employees perform compensable work off the clock, the potential overtime liability for an employer can be staggering. This topic helps businesses understand their responsibilities with respect to compensating for overtime, the rules regarding what activities constitute hours worked, and how to curb unauthorized overtime in a manner that complies with the wage and hour laws while also meeting operational needs. The law in this area strongly favors employees, and businesses need to know their rights and obligations. This topic is a must for employers who want to regain effective control over their overtime costs without unintentionally walking into a minefield of legal liability.
