Should You Be Paid For Training?
The answer is generally yes, if you are a non-exempt employee and the training is required by your employer. Employers often require orientation, training for specific tasks, training related to work procedures for issues like sexual harassment, and then they attempt to not pay the employees for the time spent in training. If this has happened to you, it is important to consult with an experienced employment law attorney.

Pay For Training
Orientation, lectures, seminars, policy meetings, safety training — all of these training activities should be paid time in the workplace. If these training sessions are required by your employer, they should count toward your 40-hour work week. If training time pushes your total hours above 40 hours, you are entitled to overtime for those extra hours.
Our attorneys are experienced litigators who stand up for employees in wage and hour disputes. We are well versed in the Fair Labor Standards Act and acquainted with the tactics employers use when attempting to get work out of employees without paying them.
