On February 1st one of our favorite speakers Vicki Lambert presented the webinar 10 Common Misconception about Payroll. During this webinar she explained that even in the 21st century there are many misconceptions about what is actually required to pay employees correctly under federal and state wage and hour laws. There are some who absolutely know that it is illegal to force exempt employees to record their time (it is not) or that if you pay an employee for a holiday it must be included in the calculation for overtime under the law (it does not). Others are convinced that if they have a firm policy in place that states emphatically that overtime must be approved in advance or it will not be paid is perfectly legal not to pay the overtime (it is not).
Attend this webinar to understand the 10 most common areas of misconception about paying employees and to ensure that the company is handling them correctly thereby not underpaying or overpaying the employee.
- Weekly overtime is the only OT employers need to worry about because federal law always supersedes state law
- The workweek is whatever the company defines it as and it can be changed as the need arises
- The employer gets to decide what is worked time Employees do not have to be paid for sleep, travel time or other type of “unproductive time”
- Employees have the option to skip meal periods or breaks Benefit time such as holiday, sick or vacation pay must be included in the computation of overtime
- And more!
