Educational employers need to ensure employees are classified correctly and provided access to benefits according to their classification. State and federal rules can make determining employment status and benefit entitlement complicated. Improper classification can carry hefty fines and penalties for school districts. Presenters will explain the various employment categories and how to classify employees correctly. 

Topics covered: 

  • Understanding employment status — full- and part-time employees, independent contractor, temporary employee, and substitute 
  • Defining the terms of employment and contract entitlement 
  • Understanding benefit and leave entitlement 
  • Determining exemption status under the Fair Labor Standards Act 
  • Handling special cases, including employment of retirees and student workers
