The New Overtime Rules

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, they’ve been finalized and will take effect January 1, 2020. 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. In particular 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.

  • How the DOL intends to handle the issue of automatic updates
  • How bonuses will factor into the salary threshold for exemption
  • Practical steps to either reduce the increase in overtime or to stay under the DOL’s radar.
