Overtime pay will be focus of legal seminar for business owners and managers

What types of employees are eligible for overtime pay? How is the pay calculated? What is the risk of a lawsuit if an hourly worker is labeled as exempt?

These are some of the issues for business owners and managers that will be addressed at the next Legal Awareness in the Workplace (LAW) seminar in Savannah.

‘Recent Developments in the Fair Labor Standards Act” will be held on Thursday, May 17, at the Coastal Georgia Center.

Running from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the seminar is sponsored by Georgia Southern University’s Continuing Education Center and will be taught by Sarah Lamar, an attorney from the employment law firm of Hunter, Maclean, Exley & Dunn, P.C.

Future LAW seminars in Savannah will include ‘Workplace Violence in Georgia” on June 21 and ‘Immigration Compliance Issues for Businesses” on July 19. Future LAW seminars in Brunswick will include ‘Federal Labor and Employment Law Record Keeping” on Aug. 14.

Each seminar will provide 1.5 recertification credit hours for individuals with (Senior) Professional in Human Resources (PHR/SPHR) certification.

The fee for each seminar is $69 per person. The fee will be reduced to $59 per person for three or more people from the same firm, or for any individual who signs up for three or more seminars.
