FLSA and Mission Organizations (TL)

Friday @ 1:30pm

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) made significant headlines last year with a regulatory adjustment to an exemption threshold. While this regulatory adjustment was put on hold by a legal challenge, organizations still need to be in compliance with the law’s current requirements and be prepared for any future changes in the law. This session focuses on the fundamentals of the FLSA and its application to mission organizations.
