Understanding the Fair Labor Standards Act

This is a reminder that we strongly encourage you to join us on Thursday, October 22 from 9-11 a.m. in the Jardine Room as Colleen Treml and Alex Teodosio discuss “Wage and Hour Issues in the Workplace: Understanding the Fair Labor Standards Act.”

The FLSA sets standards for basic minimum wage and overtime pay. It also establishes requirements to qualify for exemption from overtime pay. There are specific requirements under the FLSA that impact everyday management of staff by supervisors, including management of lunch time, work from home, and the writing of job descriptions. This workshop is designed to clarify the requirements of the FLSA that are applicable to supervisors through real-life examples.

This training program is being made available to all faculty or staff members. Your attendance and participation is encouraged.
