Davis & Gilbert Labor & Employment Breakfast Seminar
Back To Basics: Overtime Classification Requirements and Their Application to Remote Employees

March 2019

Despite extensive public litigation and heightened awareness regarding increased state minimum wages and salary requirements for overtime exemption, many employers remain unsure about how to classify their employees for overtime purposes. And, as most employers know, the consequences employers face when they get it wrong can be costly. In addition, a growing segment of employees are working remotely, and applying the overtime rules for these employees can be difficult. This seminar will focus on the nuts and bolts of exempt vs. non-exempt classification, with an emphasis on New York law and the impact on remote workers. Topics to be covered include:

  • Salary requirements and the job duties tests for exempt status
  • Tracking time and determining overtime pay for remote workers
  • New expense reimbursement laws and how they may impact remote employees
  • How remote work arrangements can intersect with disability accommodation requirements
  • State and local benefits laws that may impact remote workers

Our "Quick Takes" will cover, among other things:

  • Changes in independent contractor classification case law
  • Changes to New York City law, including a new lactation accommodation law
  • Anti-harassment training update
