Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Practical Advice for the Federal Manager
A one-half day session designed to assist managers in responding to employees’ questions about the FLSA and in planning work assignments. The session briefly touches on which positions are covered by and which are exempt from coverage by the FLSA. More time is spent on when hours qualify as overtime under the FLSA especially time spent traveling, and work time that is suffered or permitted. The rate at which FLSA overtime pay is paid is discussed. Finally, it goes over where and when an employee can file a claim if she or he believes additional FLSA overtime pay is due.
