  What's Working in Human Resources  

 

Jordan B. Schwartz was quoted an article titled "Experts Give Their Solutions to Difficult Workplace Problems." 

 

An excerpt:

 

Training and staffer pay: What are regular working hours?

 

Q: We know that workers don't need to be paid for training if attendance is outside of the employee's regular working hours, the training is voluntary, it isn't directly related to the employee's job and the staffer doesn't perform any productive work during the training. But what qualifies as "regular working hours?"

 

A: "Regular working hours" refers to the particular shift worked by an individual employee, says Jordan B. Schwartz. …

 

If a staffer reguarly works from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., you don't have to pay the worker for attending training from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. — the training session would be outside of her specific "regular working hours."
