In the BLR webinar "Job Descriptions: How to Tackle Tricky Drafting Hurdles to Maximize Compliance and Effectiveness," Attorney Olivia Goodkin examined the FLSA exemption available to outside sales positions.
She noted that to qualify for this exemption:
- The employee’s primary duty must be making sales (as defined in the FLSA), or obtaining orders or contracts for services or for the use of facilities for which a consideration will be paid by the client or customer; and
- The employee must be customarily and regularly engaged away from the employer’s place or places of business.
