PA Bar Institute’s 21st Annual Employment Law Institute - "Show Me the Money: Compensable Time After Sandifer and Busk"
Content: What does it mean to “change clothes?” Indeed, what ARE “clothes?” When does “work” begin and end for purposes of paying employees? How does 24-hour accessibility to work via personal electronic devices impact the amount of time worked? Catherine Walters, a labor and employment partner resident in our Harrisburg office, will discuss these and a number of other compensable time issues during the PA Bar Institute’s 21st Annual Employment Law Institute, to be held Tuesday and Wednesday, April 28-29, 2015 at the PA Convention Center. A frequent speaker for the Institute, Catherine will present, “Show Me the Money: Compensable Time After Sandifer and Busk” during Wednesday’s program, which will examine the concept of compensable time under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Catherine will provide the audience, composed of labor and employment law attorneys, with an in-depth discussion of what constitutes time worked, how the concept has evolved over the years, the impact of recent Supreme Court cases regarding “changing clothes” and shift-end activities, how compensable time is calculated, and the impact of 24-hour access to work on the concept of when work is actually performed.
