They’re here! The Department of Labor has finally released the New Overtime Exemption Rules! Businesses will need to analyze all of their current exempt employees to assure that those individuals are still exempt. As discussed last year, at the very least, these new rules are increasing the salary necessary for businesses to consider an employee exempt from the overtime requirements.

What this means is that wage and hour claims are going to continue to grow, and be a company’s highest risk for litigation. But the key for businesses is to identify any and all potential issues now and fix them prior to the regulations going into effect or simultaneously. Topics to be Discussed
• The specific salary that each individual must have, including the other requirements that are necessary to meet the overtime exemption.
• Different pay methods that businesses should implement for those who either 1) do not meet the overtime exemption under the law; or 2) current salary who the business can’t afford to increase to meet the new salary requirements.

Businesses who attend this webinar will walk away with a game plan as to how to comply with the new regulations, while also understanding the other options they have to comply with the wage and hour laws.
