    Default Are Employers Required To Pay For Training?

    My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Maryland

    Today my boss told me that she wants me to complete a 16 hour training over the course of one weekend. She told me that she will pay for the class, but that I will not be compensated for my time in the class. I work in a daycare and I have already completed the required training. This is just something extra that my boss wants me to do. I was under the impression that all training has to paid for. Can anyone help me?

    Are you exempt or non-exempt?

    Is this training required by the state for licensing or certificates?

    Do you need this training to keep your job?

    Im not sure if I am exempt or non exempt because I have never worked overtime. However, I am an hourly, not a salaried employee. No, this is not required by rhe government, it is just something my supervisor wants me to do. It is not a requirement for me to keep my job. She is only asking certain employees to do it. Im sure she will be really mad if I dont do it though. I dont mind doing it if it is paid for, but I alreay work a part time job on the weekends, and I dont want to miss work and not get paid.

    Here is the US DOL link re training time pay which applies to non-exempt employees. If any of the 4 requirements are not met, training time is time worked & has to be paid. However, if you are an exempt employee, you get no additional pay over your regular fixed weekly salary no matter how many hrs. you work.

    http://www.dol.gov/dol/allcfr/ESA/Ti...9CFR785.27.htm

    (Whether you are exempt or non-exempt depends on your job duties.)
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
