Overview of the webinar

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. Objectives of the Presentation are:

  • Understand which positions are targeted by the new rules
  • Understand the difference between exempt v non-exempt positions
  • Understand how reclassification may affect employees formerly classified as exempt
  • Recognize the proposed changes and their potential impact

Who should attend?

Why should you attend?
