Colorado Springs: Lunch with a Lawyer - February 9, 2016



Back by popular demand, we are repeating a topic we discussed last June.

Although it was passed in 1938, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) can still be confusing with regard to which positions qualify for an exemption from overtime.  To some extent, this is because our workplaces have changed substantially since 1938, but it is also due to the extensive amount of court decisions and opinions regarding application of the “white collar exemptions.”

·        What does “professional” really mean?

·        How should we define “discretion and independent judgment on matters of significance?”

·        What if a position supervises volunteers but no paid staff?

It is becoming increasingly important that employers update their understanding of these and other terms that relate to exemptions.  Ian Speir, an associate with Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie, will join us to provide some information about white collar exemptions and also to answer your questions.  Bring any job descriptions that you are uncertain about, and we can discuss the factors that will be important in making an exemption determination.

We provide the lunch; you provide the questions. This luncheon will not be a lecture, but is designed to provide you with the opportunity to ask questions about specific situations you have or might encounter. 

This topic is designed for business owners and managers, nonprofit directors, church and ministry leaders, human resources managers, finance managers, and others who work in decision-making or support roles in your organization.

Time: 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. – Complimentary lunch will be available beginning at 11:45 a.m.

Location: 90 South Cascade Avenue, Suite 1100, Colorado Springs, CO 80903

Upcoming topics include:

·        Drug Testing and Background Checks

·        Independent Contractors

·        Business Insurance 101

·        Affidavits, Subpoenas, and Depositions: How to Respond to Requests from Attorneys and Judges
