Don't have time to attend MCLE seminars? One alternative is to attend audio conferences. National Constitution Center Audio Conferences is offering a 60-minute audio conference next month on the subject of "FLSA Overtime Rules: Critical Issues in Employee Classification." The conference will take place tomorrow, Thursday, May 15, 2008 10:00-11:00 a.m. PDT. The cost of the conference is $199 (plus $65 if you are taking the course for MCLE credits, apparently good in all states but Kansas and Ohio). You can register and get more information at http://www.constitutionconferences.com/main.asp?G=1&E=1371. Their web page describes the conference in more detail, but here's their hook:
As more practitioners are finding themselves in the wage and hour arena, it is important that we keep apprised of recent developments and changes in the law. This 60-minute audio conference will provide you and your staff with the knowledge you need to comply with the overtime regulations – including the tests to apply to properly classify your employees and determine who does and doesn’t qualify for overtime.
We've never tried these conferences, and they aren't giving us a dime (or anything else, for that matter) for mentioning them here, so if anyone gives them a try, please leave a comment and let us know what you thought. They offer a guarantee of "a full refund if not satisfied from now until 7 days after the event."
