Wage and Hour Boot Camp

This one week intensive class presents the basics of wage and hour law in the United States and expands upon the complexities of legal compliance in a school setting. Participants will discuss federal wage laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), contracting employees and standard pay practices, including requirements for overtime and lump-sum salaries. 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 discussion boards. Participants are invited to join in a live hour-long study session on Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET when participants will walk through case studies with the instructor. Participants should plan to 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.
