Human resource professionals, supervisors and other business leaders are invited to attend a seminar in Savannah that will focus on “Recent Developments in the Fair Labor Standards Act.”

The seminar will be held on March 25 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center.

Part of the Legal Awareness in the Workplace (LAW) series sponsored by Georgia Southern University, the seminar will be taught by Wade W. Herring II, an attorney from the employment law firm of Hunter Maclean.

Herring will show participants how to correctly classify employees as exempt or non-exempt. By reviewing Department of Labor opinion letters, participants will gain a better understanding of which employees qualify for overtime pay.

The LAW series will continue in Savannah with “Basics of the Family and Medical Leave Act” on April 22, and “Georgia Employment Law” on June 24. The LAW series will continue in Brunswick with “Best Practices in Running Background and Reference Checks” on May 13.

The fee for each seminar is $69 per person. The fee will be reduced to $59 for anyone who signs up for three or more seminars, and for groups of three or more people from the same firm.

Each seminar provides 1.5 recertification credit hours for individuals with (Senior) Professional in Human Resources (PHR/SPHR) certification.

Advance registration for any of the seminars may be made by calling Georgia Southern University’s Continuing Education Center at (912) 681-5551.
