The Department of Labor, the 7th and 9th Circuit Courts have ruled that Tribes are subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act barring specific exemptions permitted by the law.  THE NEW OMB (Office of Management and Budget) SUPER CIRCULAR ALSO REQUIRES COMPLIANCE WITH FLSA. In addition to being subject to the provisions of FLSA, Tribes are also subject to the Contract Work Hours Act under ‘638 Contracts, which require compliance with the Contract Work Hours Act and the FLSA.  These two laws govern the wages paid and the hours worked by Tribal employees.  Failure to comply with these laws could result in substantial damages being levied against the Tribe.  This seminar focuses on the provisions of these Acts and uses case law and sample problem scenarios to illustrate the impact of each law. Issues examined include classifying employees as exempt/non-exempt, determining hours worked, ‘permitting’ overtime work, overtime causes including on-call duties, lunch hour, travel, accrual of ‘comp’ time, and payment calculation for overtime work.  This seminar is designed for all Tribal leaders, program officials, payroll staff and staff subject to overtime.
