Fast Facts on Compensation for Staff ~ Part 1 of 4 Part Series

Pay and Hours Worked

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, non-exempt employees must be paid for each hour they work. What constitutes these “hours worked” for which non-exempt employees must be paid is not always straightforward. Understanding FLSA’s definition for “hours worked” is critical in ensuring that non-exempt employees are compensated correctly and that employers are not hit with judgments to pay back wages and other penalties. A FastFacts scheduled on March 28, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. EDT, is the first in a four part series on wage & hour laws and regulations, timekeeping and payroll procedures applicable to the University’s non-bargaining unit employees.

It is crucial that managers, supervisors and individuals with responsibility for employee payroll administration have a clear and complete understanding of what the Act deems as compensable time. For that reason, the invitation to register for the live session will extend to those who oversee payroll administration; others who have an interest are welcome to listen to the recording after the live session through myLearning@jhu.

This FastFacts is the first in a four part series on wage & hour laws and regulations, timekeeping and payroll procedures applicable to the University’s non-bargaining unit employees. In this FastFacts event, Jill Horn, Compensation Manager, will be discussing what constitutes paid working time. Comp Time vs. Time-Off Plans will also be discussed. The next 3 FastFacts will be on:

  • Understanding & Calculating Regular Rate
