1 Wage and Hour Employment Law Update Presented by: Jack Lord ( , Christi Adams ( , Overview of the Program Historical Perspective Recent FLSA Regulations Affecting Exempt and Non-Exempt Classifications Overview of Compensable Time Payroll Record Maintenance Requirements Risks, Penalties, and Compliance Strategies
2 What Changed in 2004? Increased minimum for salary level test Refined or changed duties test Eliminated short and long tests regarding duties, but allowed more flexibility for highly compensated employees Created safe harbor for salary basis test Allowed disciplinary suspension of less than one week without violating salary basis test Background Information FLSA: Overtime: 1.5 times regular rate for all hours over 40 in a work week White Collar Exemptions: Executive, Administrative, Professional and outside sales persons and computer employees Three tests, generally, for exemption: Salary level Salary basis Job duties
3 Salary Level Test Minimum raised to $455/week ($23,660 annually) No employee below this salary level can be exempt No Salary Requirements The salary level and salary basis tests do not apply to: Outside Sales Employees Doctors Lawyers Teachers Otherwise exempt computer-related occupations paid at least $27.63 per hour
4 Highly Compensated Employee Test Permits exemption if employee: Receives total annual compensation of $100,000 or more, but at least $455 per week on a salary basis; Total annual compensation can include commissions, bonuses or other non-discretionary compensation, but not the cost of fringe benefits; Performs office or non-manual work; and Customarily and regularly performs at least one of the exempt duties or responsibilities of an exempt executive, administrative or professional employee. Salary Basis Test Employee regularly receives a predetermined amount each pay period Pay cannot be reduced due to variations in quality or quantity of work Full salary paid for any week in which any work performed Not required to pay for workweek when no work is performed
5 Salary Basis Test (cont.) Deductions from salary can jeopardize exempt status. Making improper deductions will result in the loss of the exemption: during time period in which improper deductions were made for all employees in same job classification working for the same managers responsible for the improper deductions Salary Basis Test (cont.) Permitted Deductions: penalties for violating major safety rules unpaid suspension of one or more full days for violations of workplace conduct rules unpaid FMLA leave personal absence for one or more full days absence for one or more full days for sickness or disability if part of a benefits plan to offset jury or witness fees or military pay portion for time worked in first and last weeks
6 Payroll Practices That Do Not Violate the Salary Basis test Taking deductions from exempt employees accrued leave accounts Requiring exempt employees to keep track of and record their hours worked Requiring exempt employees to work a specified schedule Implementing bona fide, across-the-board schedule changes Salary Basis Test (cont.) Corrections Allowed Safe Harbor When: Have a clearly communicated policy prohibiting improper pay deductions which: Includes a complaint mechanism, Reimbursement to the employee(s) for improper deductions, and Good faith commitment to comply in the future Unless the employer willfully violates the policy after receiving employee complaints
7 Clearly Communicated Policy The best evidence of a clearly communicated policy is a written policy Salary Basis Test---DOL Opinion Letters FLSA Employer could require exempt employees to work hours per week, and could require exempt employees to make up lost work due to personal absences of less than a day. FLSA Employer cannot deduct from an exempt employee s guaranteed salary for the replacement cost of lost or damaged equipment (e.g. laptops or cell phones), but employer may deduct such costs from bonuses.
8 Executive Exemption Must have a primary duty of management of department or area Must customarily and regularly direct the work of 2 or more employees Must have practical authority to recommend hiring, firing or promotion Executive Exemption 29 CFR Employee does not lose exemption if he/she performs both exempt and non exempt work.

10 Administrative Exemption Must have a primary duty of office/nonmanual work related to management of general business operations of employer or customer Must exercise discretion and independent judgment as to matters of significance De-emphasizing administration v. production Administrative v. Production FLSA case managers performed work free of supervision, did not operate on written protocols and were independently responsible for development of each customer s care plan DOL--duties were NOT administrative, rather part of day to day services offered by Company
11 Administrative v. Production FLSA copy editors--at direct marketing firm that focuses on book sales--reviewed materials and checked for adherence to copyright and trademark laws DOL--duties were NOT administrative, rather work related to production and done as part of day to day operations Discretion and Independent Judgment FLSA Film Location Managers who selected the film s location, negotiated the site rental, oversaw enforcement of rules for locations and represented the production company in various matters, exercised discretion and independent judgment FLSA Loss Prevention Managers who analyzed store inventory, identified paperwork controls and conducted compliance audits, exercised discretion and independent judgment

Examples of exempt positions: an employee who leads a team to complete major projects executive assistants who have been delegated authority regarding matters of significance human resource managers who formulate or implement employment policies purchasing agents who can bind the company on significant purchases Professional Exemption Learned Professional Work performed must require advanced knowledge in a field of science or learning Advanced knowledge must be customarily acquired by a prolonged course of specialized intellectual instruction for which an academic degree, although not absolutely required is prima facie evidence.
13 Professional Exemption Creative Professional Work performed requires invention, imagination, or talent In a recognized field of artistic endeavor Professional Exemption Examples of exempt positions: accountants, but not accounting clerks engineers and design engineers attorneys doctors
14 Professional Exemption FLSA Radiology technologist NOT exempt since baccalaureate degree not required and work is not predominantly intellectual in character.

FLSA Medical Coders NOT exempt since coding is not recognized by colleges and universities as a bona fide academic discipline. Professional Exemption FLSA Social Workers who need a masters degree in a specialized field and who make independent decisions about what therapy to provide are considered learned professionals; case workers who provide case management services and are only required to have a bachelor s degree in the social sciences are not learned professionals.

15 Other Exemptions Computer employees Primary duty must include: Application of systems analysis techniques and procedures, including consulting with users to determine functional specifications; Design, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing or modification of computer systems or programs; Design, documentation, testing, creation or modification of programs related to operating systems; or A combination of such duties requiring the same level of skills The exemption does not apply to employees whose primary duty relates to the manufacturer or repair of computer hardware or related equipment exempt computer employee need not consistently exercise discretion and judgment Other Exemptions Computer employees FLSA IT Support Specialist was not exempt since his duties installing, configuring, testing, and troubleshooting computer applications, networks and hardware did not constitute the types of high level computer activities required for the computer professional exemption.

Activities such as making phone calls, sending s, and meeting with clients in the office are considered exempt if performed incidental to or in conjunction with the loan officer s own outside sales activities. Effects on Employers Higher salary requirements eliminated exemptions under all tests for lesser-paid employees Some additional ability to make deductions and correct deduction errors
