HR Matters Series – Smartphone Overtime: Monitoring Wage & Hour Issues in the Modern Workplace
August 29, 2016

The popularity of smartphones can have an impact on the eight-to-five workday.

The work environment continues to creep beyond the office to the car, the home and anywhere with a steady wireless signal. As this change ensues, employers must utilize advanced planning and clear policies to minimize the risk of overtime claims from an increasingly connected workforce.

On September 13 as part of the ongoing HR Matters series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, join Madalene Witterholt, a director for Crowe & Dunlevy of Tulsa. Witterholt will discuss how our uber-connected behavior matches up with the Fair Labor Standards Act. Additionally, she will discuss the change of exemption status and how it could impact your workplace.

HR Matters sessions are held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Meridian’s campus. Registration is $15 per session and includes lunch. For more information or to enroll, contact Marcy Luter, Coordinator of Staff and Management Development Training, at or (405) 377-3333 ext. 297 or toll-free at (888) 607-2509 or visit
