FLSA for Public Safety
How public safety departments approach Fair Labor Standards Act (”FLSA”) requirements in labor negotiations can have a huge impact on the department’s overtime obligations. For example, the FLSA provides particular ways to control some overtime costs for fire protection and law enforcement personnel by allowing public agencies to utilize FLSA work periods and overtime thresholds that are more favorable than the 7-day/40-hour standard required for most other kinds of employees. Also, public safety departments may negotiate special rules for the treatment of compensatory time off (“CTO”) that may serve to minimize the department’s costs when CTO is cashed out. However, choosing the correct contract policies and procedures to realize such benefits involves careful consideration and evaluation of the applicable FLSA rules and regulations.
Join Richard (“Rick”) Bolanos, one of LCW’s FLSA specialists, for this one-hour webinar on effectively applying FLSA rules for public safety personnel. Rick will be discussing the benefits of developing specific language for public safety labor agreements that can work best for your agency, and options, preliminary requirements and strategies for effectively negotiating implementation of that language.
Who Should Attend:
Supervisors, Managers (including those who work in law enforcement and the fire service), Department Heads, Human Resources Staff, Finance/Payroll and IT staff responsible for ensuring compliance with the FLSA.
