Featured Speakers: Claudia D. Orr and Laura M. Dinon

Topic Overview:

The Fair Labor Standards Act has been in effect since 1938, but employers still struggle to comply with its requirements. Among the most difficult aspects is determining “hours worked.” What is considered compensable work time? This webinar will provide practical information to ensure that businesses comply with the law. 

During this webinar, “It’s all About Time – What are ‘Hours Worked’ Under the FLSA?,” Plunkett Cooney employment attorneys Claudia Orr and Laura Dinon discussed which hours on the job are considered hours worked and must be compensated and which hours are not considered compensable working hours. Participants learned about the rules for:

  • Meal and rest periods
  • On-call time
  • Sleep time
  • Time spent changing clothes
  • Time spent walking from the time clock to the work station
  • Time spent washing up
  • Time spent wearing a pager
  • Training time
  • Travel time
