This chapter explains which employees are exempt from overtime; when an "independent contractor" is actually an "employee;" when "on-call" employees are deemed to be at work and entitled to overtime; how "comp time" is usually not the solution to the payment of overtime; what constitutes "work time;" how managers can become personally liable under the Fair Labor Standards Act for the payment of overtime; how the Davis Bacon Act mandates payment of "prevailing rate" on federal construction jobs; wage & hour investigation procedures and how to survive them; and the most common mistakes made by companies under this law.
