This workshop will provide non-profit organizations with an overview of the Fair Labor Standards  Act.  After attending the workshop, managers will be able to:


  • Understand who is covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act
  • Determine what positions are subject to overtime provisions
  • Review current exemptions to ensure compliance
  • Develop strategies to implement the changes


The workshop will answer the following questions and many more:


  1. Can I pay all of my employees a salary?
  2. What should I do if my employees want to volunteer with my organization?
  3. Can I provide employees compensatory time when they work overtime?
  4. Why can’t I just classify all of my employees as independent contractors?
