Recent legislation has put employment-misclassification issues at the forefront of the Department of Labor. Enforcement is at an all-time high, and properly classifying employees as non-exempt or exempt can be tricky. The application of key factors for each exemption (e.g., executive, administration, professional, computer, or highly compensated) is difficult and requires careful attention to the actual functions performed. In addition, financial institutions must carefully review the regulations, apply the exemptions to typical positions, and discover how to reclassify or change compensation for affected positions with minimal risk. Designed for HR professionals, this session will specifically address common misclassification issues within financial institutions.
