Introduction to the Fair Labor Standards Act

February 19 - February 20

Introduction to the Fair Labor Standards Act is a two-day comprehensive introduction to federal wage and hour law. Topics to be covered include the salary-basis and salary-threshold tests, the duties tests for determining whether an employee is exempt or nonexempt, compensable time, overtime and comp time, use of the fluctuating workweek, the 207(k) exemption for law enforcement and firefighters, and the regular rate. There are no pre-requisites for this class. It covers the same material as the FLSA segment of Introduction to Public Employment Law (IPEL) but at greater length and in more detail as it is twice as long as the IPEL session.

The class will meet from 1:00–5:00 p.m. on the first day and from 8:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m. on the second day.

Instructors: Diane Juffras

Continuing Education Credit:

We will be applying to the NC Bar for 7.5 hours of CLE.

Attendance at this course should count toward 3 of the 50 points needed for IPMA-HR recertification, 8.5 of the 60 PDCs needed for SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification, and 8.5 of the 60 credits needed for PHR or SPHR recertification. While Introduction to the FLSA is not a pre-approved program for IPMA, SHRM or HRCI recertification, we will provide you with a certificate of completion and a syllabus which you can use to apply for your credits from those organizations. The course material is consistent with the continuing education requirements of all three organizations.

The Local Government Federal Credit Union offers scholarships to local government employees to apply towards tuition for conferences, classes, and seminars offered by the School of Government. There are five deadlines to submit applications: March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1.
