Whether you are new to the FLSA or have years of experience with it, A Comprehensive Guide to the Fair Labor Standards Act for Public Employers is for you. Written in clear, easy-to-understand language, this publication covers the basic rules of FLSA-exempt status and digs into difficult issues involving employee classification. Employers will find the book’s discussion of allowable deductions from employee pay particularly helpful, along with its in-depth coverage of issues of compensable time, including on-call time, travel time, training time, and gap time. Other topics addressed include hourly rate vs. regular rate, cash overtime vs. comp time, the “regular” forty-hour week worked by most employees vs. the longer work period for public-safety employees, volunteers vs. employees, employees working second jobs for their employers, and employees volunteering for their employers. A Comprehensive Guide to the Fair Labor Standards Act for Public Employers will answer questions on these topics and more.
