Do you think your nonprofit's employees are not owed overtime because they are salaried? Think again. This common employment law myth and other typical employee classification errors often lead to costly individual and class action wage-and-hour lawsuits and governmental investigations and enforcement actions. Please join us for a discussion of the ten most common employee classification pitfalls that nonprofits face when they decide whether their employees are exempt from state and federal wage laws. Some of the employee classification and related issues which will be discussed include:

  • The executive, administrative and professional employee exemptions
  • Misclassification of employees as independent contractors
  • Commissioned sales workers
  • Seasonal employees
  • Computer professionals
  • The myth about salaried employees
  • The importance of written job descriptions

We also will offer tips on how to ensure proper employee classification and highlight best practices for preventing, or in some cases responding, to a governmental audit or lawsuit.
