Cooperman to speak on employee misclassification at Baltimore ACC meeting
Harriet E. Cooperman, co-chair of Saul Ewing’s Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits (LEEB) Practice and chair of its Employment Litigation Practic will speak about employee misclassification during lunch for the Baltimore Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel.
The talk will focus how to distinguish between employees and independent contractors and the ramifications of improper classification. They will also discuss how to determine which employees properly fall under the white collar exemptions and how to satisfy the “salaried basis” requirement needed to obtain these exemptions. Common pitfalls that would render otherwise exempt employees non-exempt also will be discussed.
The 90-minute lunch and program begins at Noon at Roy’s Restaurant, 720 B. Aliceanna Street, in Baltimore. The event is open to Baltimore ACC members and in-house counsel only.
