In this webinar we will discuss which jobs and which employers are likely to be impacted and what to do now in order to comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Why Should you Attend
It's finally happened! The long wait is over. The United States Department of Labor just released its new overtime exemption rules. For many employers that means that many of the positions it had previously classified as exempt from overtime requirements will not be any longer - unless these employees receive a salary increase equal to or greater than the new salary threshold. The new salary rules are expected to impact at least a million workers nationwide, and to result in a significant increase in the number of employees who will be eligible for overtime pay. In this webinar we will discuss the new rules.

  • Practical steps to take in anticipation of the rule's finalization

  • How often the DOL anticipates it will update the salary level

Topic Background
The intent of the proposed rules is to extend the FLSA's overtime protections to millions of employees. The new salary level significantly increases the amount required to meet the salary test that must be met before a job can be classified as overtime-exempt. As a result, many employers can expect these new rules will affect their long-standing practices and business models. Employers need, before the rules become final, to review their current employee classifications and compensation practices to determine what changes they need to make, especially with those positions that are now exempt but will not be once the new rules take effect. Employers may also need to consider making changes to compensation and/or job duties or reclassifying their employees from exempt to nonexempt. Reclassification also carries many issues with it, including without limitation, record and timekeeping issues and training for managers and employees, proper calculation of overtime among many other concerns. With proper advance, these issues are manageable.
