The Ruby Files: Exempt or Non-Exempt and the DOL Audit? It Really Isn’t a Question
January 13, 2016

We invite you to JOIN US as we begin “The Ruby Files,“ a five-part webinar series that follows Ruby R. Breaker, a fictitious employee whose workplace behavior is based on real life employment situations. Just as Ruby's managers grapple with each challenging situation, Polsinelli's Labor and Employment attorneys, and other firm attorneys from health care, intellectual property and other industry and practice groups, will analyze the factual and legal key take-aways. 

Meet Ruby, a 39-year-old, recent re-entrant into the workforce with two school-aged children, trying to conceive her third.

In her first employment opportunity as she re-enters the workforce, Ruby applies to work at a hospital, is hired as a Unit Manager, and is classified as an exempt manager. Her job description includes duties such as helping the employees she supervises, but Ruby ends up spending most of her time performing clerical duties. Frustrated, Ruby calls the Department of Labor (“DOL”) to complain about not getting paid over-time, and a subsequent DOL investigation of the hospital ensues. Meanwhile, Ruby requests time off from work during the work day to attend in-vitro fertilization appointments, claiming FMLA and ADA coverage. 

Polsinelli’s Labor and Employment and Health Care attorneys will dissect interactions between Ruby and her manager, and provide take-aways that can be applied to your business.
