Converting from Exempt to Non-Exempt
We have had extensive meetings with our lawyer and determined that a few of our positions need to be re-classified from exempt to non-exempt. I am currently working on a training for supervisors and one for employees to explain the rules of the FLSA and our state wage and hour rules. My biggest concern is framing the change so that employees do not perceive this as a "demotion" or a reflection on their professional work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I need to do the training starting on Tuesday!
