Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Webinar:
What Legal Aid Programs Need to Know About FLSA


An MIE Webinar with
Ronald W, Taylor, Esq. Venable LLP
Lillian L. Reynolds, Esq. Venable LLP


October 5, 2017
2:00 – 3:30 PM EDT  



MIE will present a webinar on October 5, 2017 addressing the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and how Legal Aid, and other employers, can incorporate the law’s requirements in their organizations’ policies and procedures.

The changes proposed by President Obama in 2016 were delayed, but legal aid programs need to make sure that their policies and record keeping procedures comply with the current requirements and they are ready to adjust to the anticipated changes when they are implemented.

Our speakers for this webinar are: Ronald W, Taylor and Lillian L. Reynolds. Both are lawyers in the Baltimore office of Venable LLP.

Legal aid managers across the country have expressed interest in a number of FLSA issues which will be covered in this webinar including: 
 

  • ‚ÄčIndependent contractors, for example, CPAs who come into an organization regularly to supplement the work of fiscal staff;
  • Exempt vs. non-exempt status for paralegals, administrative managers;
  • Comp time for exempt/nonexempt staff, for example, union contracts which provide comp time;
  • Documentation for work performed off site or during travel;
  • Dealing with the 24/7 office culture using both employer issued and personal technology and devices;
  • Updates on the overtime rule, for example, attorneys practicing law, legal aid attorneys earning less than the proposed new salary amounts.
