The 41st Hour – Overtime
The performance of paralegal duties often requires long hours, exceeding the usual 40-hour week, but some paralegals are not compensated for those “overtime” hours. Why is that? Is that because they are salaried, or do not have a college degree, or live in a certain state, or work for solo practitioners or governmental entities? In this webinar, we will answer these and other questions by examining the requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) promulgated by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division. Attendees will gain a working knowledge of FLSA’s basic requirements, with a focus on their rights to demand compliance by their employer if overtime is not included in their compensation package.
