It has been over ten years since the Department of Labor overhauled the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime regulations. Over two years ago, President Obama directed the Department of Labor to look at the exemptions and simplify them. President Obama opined that the required salary was “too low” and that the 2004 regulations were simply too difficult to interpret – as demonstrated by the increasing litigation over who met the managerial/executive exemption. The Department of Labor took almost two years to publish proposed regulations that did nothing more than to suggest that the minimum salary requirement should be raised to $50,440. The vagueness of the proposed regulations left employers in a limbo of how to budget for 2016.

The Department of Labor has also been slow about finalizing the regulation with the minimum salary set at $47,476 with automatic increases every three years. Job descriptions will have to be analyzed and revised. The new rules will also affect your 2017 budget and beyond. What do you need to do to come into compliance?

This webinar with expert speaker Susan Desmond, will give you the most up to date tools and information to understand current overtime regulations, exemptions, standards and practices.
