Webinar On FLSA How to Determine Exempt Status & Calculate Overtime Correctly
Complying with FLSA How to Determine Exempt Status & Calculate Overtime Correctly Location: Attend Live Webinar Dates : 27-May-2015: 01:00 PM EST Duration: 1 Hours 60 Mins Speaker: Susan Fahey Desmond Susan Fahey Desmond, is a partner in the New Orleans office of Jackson Lewis, a national labor and employment law firm with offices in 48 cities across the country. She has been representing management in all areas of labor and employment law for over 25 years. Course Description: Although the Fair Labor Standards Act has been around for a long time, it is the most frequently violated employment law. Violations are rarely intentional. Employers misclassify employees as exempt or fail to calculate working time accurately. Misclassifications can result in severe back pay issues. Calculating overtime incorrectly can often result in over payments or underpayments. This webinar on employee overtime calculation will help you understand what is time worked, exempt versus non-exempt status and how to calculate your employees' overtime correctly so to avoid these costly suits Course Objective: Overtime lawsuits are on the rise. Employees are getting wiser to their rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and are realizing that their employers have been incorrectly designating them as exempt and, therefore, have not been paying them overtime they are due. They are also realizing that employers are failing to record working time correctly resulting in significant underpayments to their employees. Additionally, even if the working time is accurately noted, employers failed to calculate overtime obligations correctly. Due to the frequent errors on employers part, many employees are grouping together to bring class actions or collective actions under the FLSA making these suits more costly than ever. Course Outline: What is actual time worked under the FLSA. What is meant by suffered or permitted to work? Exempt versus Nonexempt Status. Deductions from exempt pay - avoiding the landmines. Hourly versus Salaried Status. How to determine FLSA classification of positions. Problems with "job creep" and "perception of status". How to calculate working time including travel time, training time, donning and doffing and others. Methods of calculating overtime salary coefficient, piece rates, blended rates, BELO contracts. Employee-employer relationship versus independent contractor status. Suggested policies to administer under FLSA. Compensatory time off versus pay in lieu of notice. What to do when you discover that you have made an error. Target Audience: This webinar will provide valuable assistance to Human Resource professionals In-house counsel who deal with employee benefits Company owners Labor and employment law personnel Payroll professionals Companies that provide payroll services to other entities Please Click here for More Information To Enroll for This Program today please click here Thank you & Regards, Sean Sharpe, Training Manager, Call us at this Toll Free number: +1-866-978-0800

Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) - Boston
Course Description

66% of software features are rarely or never used. Making the right product decisions, building the right features, and incorporating feedback is the difference between building products that satisfy customers and building products that delight and engage them.

As one of the largest and fastest-growing agile frameworks, Scrum is a simple, yet powerful way to manage product requirements, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. One of the key roles in Scrum is that of Product Owner, the person tasked with setting and communicating the product vision, the one who ultimately determines what gets built.

The BigVisible Certified Scrum Product Owner course is a 2-day, hands-on workshop, filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed with Scrum. Our Certified Scrum Trainers are coaches first, which means that long after your course is over, we have the experience and expertise to provide ongoing support and assist you in implementing what you've learned.

Our CSPO course offers a detailed examination of the Scrum project lifecycle and the product owner role, going beyond the basic definitions to focus on how to achieve success as a product owner with Scrum. Course delivery is varied for optimal learning, with activities ranging from case study analyses and in-depth lectures, to hands-on exercises and interactive games. Each person will leave this course empowered with practical, applicable advice and skills they can apply to their own projects and teams.Agenda & Learning Objectives

Our CSPO course covers a broad range of topics, including:

  • How Scrum helps organizations cope with change, budget constraints, quality issues, and more
  • The product owner role and how it differs from traditional roles, such as business analyst
  • Ways to manage the product backlog and write effective user stories
  • Pragmatic practices for managing and communicating the scope and vision of a product
  • How to partner effectively with a development team
  • Strategies for delivering faster by taking advantage of the iterative, incremental nature of Scrum

Courses typically run from 8:30am to 5:00pm, though the exact hours may vary.Coffee in the morning, lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided and are included in the course price.These informal breaks are outstanding opportunities to visit and network with your trainer and classmates.Intended Audience

This course is appropriate for stakeholders, business analysts, managers, product owners, and anyone who wants to understand what agile and Scrum are all about from the product-owner perspective. Though no agile experience is required, some experience managing projects is helpful.Course Benefits

Upon completion of the course, students will be eligible for the following benefits:

  • Eligibility for the CSPO
  • Ability to apply for 1 PDU per contact hour with the Project Management Institute
  • Satisfaction of two-thirds of the 21 required training contact hours for the PMI-ACP(Agile Certified Practitioner) as well as a strong foundation for the associated certifying exam
Why a BigVisible Course?

BigVisible focuses on one thing: enabling organizational agility. As coaches, we understand the challenges organizations face at all phases of their agile implementations: from team-level execution and delivery, to higher-level strategy, governance, and leadership. We know that for an organization to achieve agility, people at all levels must understand agile principles and be educated about agile processes like Scrum.

Our foundational training courses are firmly rooted in the core agile principles and practices you need to achieve success, regardless of your ultimate role in the organization. In addition to this quality training, BigVisible offers comprehensive coaching services, so if you get stuck or find that you need more help applying what youve learned, you can call on us.

Sustainability Budgets: Moving Your Organization from Finite to Infinite Funding

In 2012, adidas Groups Corporate Real Estate Team launched the greenENERGY Fund. We sought to address two issues that plague well-intended Facilities: lack of time and training to build carbon-reduction business cases, and lack of money to make the investments.

From the start, it was clear our Facilities professionals had great ideas and superb working knowledge of their properties. They often knew exactly what could be done to slim carbon footprints but they lacked the bandwidth to translate the concepts into CFO-speak and secure the funding to get it done.

Our Fund provides technical assistance and funding for energy efficiency retrofits and carbon reduction projects. We also act as an exchange for experience and technology. Also known as our carbon-reduction venture capital fund, gEF has invested ~$4.5 M globally since its launch. The Fund has targeted (and continues to exceed) a minimum annual return of 20+% across the project portfolio.

This presentation willillustrate broadly-applicable retrofit initiatives that havedelivered nice returns, andshare practical tips for securing funding for efficiency and carbonprojects.
