Wage and Hour Boot Camp

This one week intensive class presents the basics of wage and hour law through the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and expands upon the complexities of legal compliance in a school setting. Participants will discuss federal wage laws, standard pay practices, overtime requirements and requirements for overtime exemption and lump-sum payment. Participants will discuss specific school positions that are often difficult to assess for FLSA such as coaches, dorm parents, and the head's executive assistant as well as learn about on-call rules and other issues unique to independent schools. This course includes asynchronous instruction available daily through videos, reading and online discussion topics. Twice during the week (on Tuesday and Thursday from 3pm to 4pm ET), the instructor will be available for office hours to discuss participants' questions in a live Zoom chat. Participants should reserve 1-2 hours daily for the course in order to maximize learning.

This course is being offered in partnership between NBOA and One Schoolhouse.
