Rachel Barlotta Discusses Compensable Training Time Under the FLSA in Bloomberg BNA L&E Blog


In this article in Bloomberg BNA's Labor and Employment Blog, Rachel Barlotta discusses whether employers are required under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to compensate employees for time spent training. Ms. Barlotta sees the trend as being more favorable towards training time being compensable.

"Recent federal decisions regarding unpaid internships have created a high bar for employers to demonstrate that time spent by any employee for training or educational purposes is not compensable," Ms. Barlotta said. "These decisions require an employer to show that they do not benefit from the time spent by an employee engaged in an internship. By analogy, employees could argue that if the employer benefits at all from the training the time should be compensable."
