|Duration: 90 minutes||Speaker: Melissa Fleischer, Esq|
On Sept 24, 2019 the U.S. Department of Labor announced a final rule to make 1.3 million American workers eligible for overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
The final rule updates the earnings thresholds necessary to exempt executive, administrative, or professional employees from the FLSA’s minimum wage and overtime pay requirements, and allows employers to count a portion of certain bonuses/commissions towards meeting the salary level. The new thresholds account for growth in employee earnings since the currently enforced thresholds were set in 2004. In the final rule, the Department is:
The new Final Rule requires employers to understand how the rule has changed how you classify your employees as exempt. What changes has this final overtime rule made and what actions do you as employers need to take to make sure that you are in compliance? For instance, the salary level test has now been raised higher than it previously was but not as high as was proposed under the Obama administration final OT rule. What does this mean for you and how to properly classify employees as exempt? Did the DOL make any other changes that you need to know about? How can you now properly classify your employees? Attend this webinar to get the answers to these and other important questions.
Please join Melissa Fleischer, attorney at law, as she provides this in-depth overview of the Final Rule and advice on methods for employers to ensure compliance with these revisions to the FLSA.
