16 Use of Manuals Use of highly technical, scientific, legal or financial or other highly complex manuals, guidelines or other established procedures understood or interpreted by those with advanced or specialized knowledge does not destroy an exemption. This does not include How To manuals.

17 Administrative The primary duty must be the performance of office or nonmanual work directly related to the management or general business operations of the employer or the employer s customers; and The employee s primary duty includes the exercise of discretion and independent judgment with respect to matters of significance.

18 Administrative, continued Directly related to the business includes functional areas such as: Tax, finance, accounting, budgeting, auditing; Insurance; Quality control; Marketing, advertising; Human Resources, employee benefits, labor relations; Legal and regulatory compliance; Advisers or consultants to clients and customers

19 Discretion and Independent Judgment Includes: Comparison and evaluation of possible courses of conduct Acting or making a decision after various possibilities have been considered

23 The FLSA Regulations: Professional The primary duty must be the performance of work requiring advanced knowledge, defined as work which is predominantly intellectual in character and which includes work requiring the consistent exercise of discretion and judgment;

24 The FLSA Regulations: Professional The advanced knowledge must be in a field of science or learning; and The advanced knowledge must be customarily acquired by a prolonged course of specialized intellectual instruction.

25 The FLSA Regulations What degree or knowledge is required? Knowledge may be attained by a specialized degree or advanced knowledge and intellectual instruction; Academic degree in any field generally will not qualify for the professional exemption

26 Examples of Professional Lawyers, doctors, engineers, actuaries, theologians, accountants, architects, teachers, chemists, biologists, pharmacists Athletic trainers Licensed funeral directors Registered nurses Registered or certified medical technologists Four-year degreed dental hygienists Four-year degreed physician assistants Four-year degreed executive and sous chefs

28 Exceptions to Salary Basis Deductions may be made when an exempt employee is absent for one or more full days for personal reasons other than sickness or disability; Deductions may be made for absences for one or more full days due to sickness or disability if the deduction is made in accordance with a bona fide plan, policy or practice of providing compensation for loss of salary for absences due to sickness or disability.

29 Deductions May Be Made for Penalties imposed in good faith for safety infractions of major significance; Unpaid disciplinary suspensions for one or more full days imposed for violations of workplace conduct rules. Disciplinary deductions must be made pursuant to a written policy applicable to all employees

30 Employer Does Not Pay If: Sick or disability benefits are exhausted or not yet accrued; Employee does not perform any work during the work week, including the initial week of employment; partial week payment is permissible in the initial or terminal week of employment; On unpaid leave pursuant to the Family Medical Leave Act.

31 Penalties for Improper Deductions Lost exemption for time period of improper deductions for all employees in the classification working for the same manager responsible for the improper deductions. The exemption will not be lost if the improper deduction is isolated and inadvertent if the employer reimburses the employees for the improper deduction.

32 Special Provisions for Public Employers May make deductions for partial day absences for personal reasons or illness if the employee accrues personal or sick leave pursuant to a policy that requires a reduced salary or no salary at all if: Employee failed to obtain proper authorization for the leave; Leave has been exhausted; Employee requests leave without pay.

33 Good News for the Employer!! A clearly communicated policy that: prohibits improper pay deductions; includes a complaint mechanism, reimburses for improper deductions; and states that the employer makes a good faith commitment to comply in the future protects the employer from losing the exemption unless the violation is willful.

34 Sample Policy Language Best Employer is committed to paying employees minimum wage and overtime consistent with the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Employees who believe that their pay is not in compliance with the Act should contact or submit a complaint in accordance with.

35 Self Auditing Allows employers the opportunity to determine when to review positions and when to make policy changes; Reduces possibility of willful violations penalties

36 Damages in FLSA cases are wages owed, not compensatory damages and always includes attorney fees. Caution!

37 Steps to Ensure Compliance Review all existing positions to ensure that the exemption has been properly applied. Raise the salary of any exempt employee who meets the duties test and is below the minimum. Closely monitor employee time and attendance records. Implement and strictly enforce policies regarding use of overtime. Do not allow incidental overtime (e.g. working lunches, working a few minutes extra)

38 Steps to Compliance Continue to pay exempt employee a salary and pay overtime or compensatory time for hours worked over 40 in a work week, no need to convert employee to hourly. Employees who work a fix schedule and rarely work overtime can be paid a salary. When extra time is required, plan and budget extra pay. Keep a record of the schedule and keep a record of the hours actually worked only when the actual hours vary from the schedule.

39 Steps to Compliance Use comp time for the period when the hours increase. Consult an employment lawyer if you have any questions.
