  • staff meetings

    can my employer have mandatory staff meetings once a month that are NOT paid?

    what if they word the job descriptions or employee handbook that this is what is expected of all employees?

  • #2
    Are the employees in question exempt or non-exempt?

    If non-exempt, and if the meetings are mandatory, then they must be paid regardless of what the handbook says. (This is not the case if the meetings are truly optional.) If exempt, then they are not due any additional compensation for attending the meeting whether the meetings are mandatory or not.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      If you are an exempt employee, it wouldn't matter, but being a non-exempt employee, you must be paid for ALL hours worked. Not doing so is a direct violation of the Fair Labors Standards Act and should be reported to your state DOL for wage claims.
