Determine whether the employee has a potential FLSA claim. Explain the legal basis for your conclusion. From an HR perspective list, explain and analyze five things an employer can do to ensure compliance with FLSA and avoid claims.

After listening to the FLSA tutorial, Mike does not have a clam. In the tutorial, Mike cited that he was due 36 hours in overtime payment for working out because his work out were related to him building physical strength for work. He also cited that he was given workout time while on the clock but felt that he that he needed additional workout time. According to the US Department of Labor (DOL), an employee must be compensated for the actual hours worked, whether it be time spent in trainings, lectures, meetings or any other occurrence during work hours (Dorris, 2009). The caveat here is if the employee voluntarily performs those assignments outside regular working hours, and the course, lecture, or meeting is not job related or the employee does not perform any productive work during attendance, then he or she is not covered un the FLSA.
I believe Mike is not covered because as stated above, his position as on the SWAT allots a predetermined amount of time for him to work out to remain in shape. These hours were determined to be adequate, therefore anything in excess of those hours are considered personal time. Since he is a part of the SWAT team, it is not unusual that he would spend more time in the gym or working out, it’s just that the excess time does not warrant compensation. In fact, it is encouraged that SWAT team members workout outside of their normal duty hours. The thirty six hours of additional work out time was not mandated by the organization he works for, but rather time he believed he needed. As outlined by The US Department of Labor, if an employee in his or her own right seeks independent training or any type of…...

...prices ^ Agrregrate demanded Lower Prices Less Output More Output Demanded demanded Problem 3 Classical economists viewed the economy as inherently stable and self adjust to deviations from its long-term growth trend, whereas Keynes viewed it as unstable and required government intervention to get back on track. Problem 4 Formula?? MPC * additional income ? * 20 billion Problem 5 Yes. The MPC is the fraction of each dollar of disposable income not spent on consumption. If a poor person doesn’t spend the money then it’s considered MPS however the millionare can spend money but the difference remaining can be that equal to the poor person’s MPS. Hence MPS =.25 and MPC=.75 from a $1. Problem 6 Formula MPC x additional income .01 * 1billion= 1 billion Internet Question The North and South both took several approaches to implement and find a successful way to tax the people. The south had one of the “lightest” tax burdens. There was little infrastructure in place to institute the people to pay internal taxes. Many of the forms of capital in the South were primarily comprised of land and slaves and liquid forms of wealth such as paper currency or specie were hard to come by. Congress’ first attempt to raise money for taxes failed. By 1861 Confederate Congress enacted a minor tariff and later the same year implemented a small tax on real and personal property. The South continued with various methods of using printed......

...WEEK 6 Discussion Question Chapter 6 (1,2 and 4) Q1 Advice Liability for contravention of s18 is strict. The defendant’s intention or state of mind is irrelevant. A person may breach s18 despite the fact that a statement or representation has been made honestly, innocently and without any intention to actively mislead or deceive. * Reputation: the need to establish the existence of a reputation or goodwill is more critical under passing off, as this requirement underpins the passing off action. The question is whether the use of the particular get-up or name by an alleged wrongdoer in relation to his product is likely to mislead or deceive persons familiar with the claimant’s product to believe that the two products are associated. * Misrepresentation: a conduct is likely to mislead or deceive meaning. The court will apply objective test in determining for itself whether conduct is misleading. An applicant can seek to protect trade designations, must establish that such designations are distinctive of the business or product to which they are attached or in words that they are exclusively associated with the applicants in the minds of customers. Words that describe a product, in a generic sense, can be used by other trade and cannot be monopolised by one trader.

...inventory costs. In the United States, under GAAP, a firm can report inventory as LIFO or FIFO. Having one method of reporting inventory, and other important financial information is going to make reporting universal, easier to understand, and users will begin to think of the reports as more reliable. (2) “Global Accounting Convergence… (Part II)” discusses several possible scenarios for the evolution of accounting standards in the US. Choose the scenario that would result in the best possible outcome for the United States. Give 2 specific reasons why your scenario would be the best alternative. Give 2 obstacles to this potential outcome. The scenario that would result in the best possible outcome for the United States is Scenario 6 – Set Conditional Timetable to Fully Adopt IFRS. The U.S. is inevitably moving towards adopting the IFRS. Because the costs and benefits are more firm-specific in the United States, it is reasonable to say that setting timetables gives firms enough time to plan for the conversion. The only downfall to this may be that setting timetables could take time. It could take years to implement by firm-specific timetables. Allowing firms to convert on timetables could allow for other firms to examine the benefits of converting before actually doing so, which will give them an outline for what they could feel is coming when it comes time to convert. Doing it this way will let firms that are waiting to convert weigh the pros and cons, and convert at......

...Week #6 What are the ways in which organizations routinely seek to regulate and control members’ identities? Is identity regulation a legitimate organizational concern? What are some of the paradoxes typically associated with the practical implementation of greater participation? What unique challenges are associated with virtual team? “Organizations are principal sources of meaning in today’s contemporary life” ” (Eisenberg et al., 2010, p. 173. Nowadays throughout organizations there are multiple identities, networks, participation and paradoxes of participation. While “through the attempts to coordinate our activities with others, we come to understand both who we are and who we might become” (Eisenberg et al., 2010, p. 173). Addressing the question, “How we manage team based groups in organizations”? Entirely we have to actually examine the organization inside out all look at the bigger picture in order to create a great work environment without conflict. “Our understanding of how we are both similar to and different from other shape our very sense of self, and this is particularly true in the organizational life” (Eisenberg et al., 2010, p. 173).In chapter 6, we encounter the concept of organizational identity. “Identity is defined as how individuals position themselves in the world through language and action” (Eisenberg et al., 2010, p. 173). Organizational identities can be surprisingly useful. Organizational identities are the organization members' collective......

...Carlos David 10/8/15 Media Week 6 Assignment Considering that fact that only ten to fifteen percent of new coble channels succeed is a steep factor. If a television show producer decides to create a new cable channel, they must figure out a way to satisfy a specific or unique market niche to be successful. They must do this because if they create a new channel that is tailored to a specific audience, however that audience is already satisfied with a cable channel that provides them with the content they want, that new channel will not succeed. Being a college student, I noticed that not many students take full advantage of their university. So if I was a television show producer, and I was deciding to create a new cable channel, it would be geared towards the average student. The channel would be simple; it would provide advice to students who are currently in college, and for high school students who are going to be applying to college. First lets talk about the high school aspect of it. Now generally there will be certain phases in the year where high school students will be applying to universities. With that being said, I know it isn’t easy for a sixteen or seventeen year old to fathom how overwhelming applying to college is, while at the same time trying to handle still taking classes and maybe even extracurricular activities. Maybe there can be a segment that will take up maybe an hour of the channel to discuss some tips for high school students.......
