Preparing for New DOL Overtime Regs: A Strategy Session (Session II)
The Department of Labor has issued the new Overtime Regulations. The Regulations are effective December 1, 2016, so every employer will need to plan for compliance. It is critical that you understand how the new regulations will affect your business and plan accordingly.
Join us for a critical strategy session with Kegler Brown’s employment lawyers, where we’ll discuss a range of important topics, including:
- The contextual framework of the FLSA overtime rules;
- The specific requirements of the new Regulations; and
- Practical strategies to meet the new overtime exemption requirements.
We anticipate a heavy turnout and are planning two separate sessions to accommodate our clients. Both sessions are approved for HRCI credit. We will also be offering CPE credit.
New Overtime Rule Changes are Imminent
Whether you employ 10 or 10,000, the “exempt/non-exempt” overtime rules have always been a perplexing HR problem- a problem that will become more complex with new Regulations from the U.S. Department of Labor.
The Department is proposing major changes to the most commonly utilized “white collar” exemptions from the requirement to pay overtime. Among other changes, the new Regulations will double the minimum salary that must be paid in order to maintain an exemption. It is estimated that the new Regulations will increase the entitlement to overtime pay for nearly 5 million workers.
These changes will have significant impact – both financial and operational – on your business. Do you know what the new Regulations require? Do you know who will be exempt and who will not? Have you considered alternatives that may be available to you so that you will be in compliance?
Ignoring the new Regulations could have severe consequences: remember, wage-hour litigation is the fastest growing type of litigation in the employment field.
