"Pain-and-a-half"



John Goff in CFO magazine on the boom in overtime litigation: "Some of the trouble stems from a common misconception that if an employee is salaried, overtime pay goes out the window. Given that many employees ask to be salaried (perceiving it as a status-booster) and managers are often happy to comply (seeing it as a way to save money), a potential problem may balloon until a lawsuit comes along to pop it. ... 'The federal overtime law is confusing for many employers,' says Penny Morey, managing director at CBIZ Human Capital Services. 'Even HR professionals don't always understand it, so line managers are even less likely to follow it correctly.'" (via WorkplaceProf Blog).
