  • 60 minutes

New DOL rules go into effect beginning on Jan 1, 2020.  Overtime and the minimum wage has been a hot topic for the last several years, and legislation almost went into effect in 2017 but was stopped by several states coming forward with legal action.  Now in September of 2019, the federal Department of Labor has released final legislation to update the salary threshold. 

To that matter, Employers should determine which and how many employees will be affected by the change—those making between $455 and $684 per week.  Also, have to determine if it makes business sense to increase the salaries of those individuals or to reclassify them as non-exempt making them eligible for overtime pay.

Session Highlights:

  • Federal and State Minimum wage review to include most up to date changes

  • Discussion on how companies should handle minimum wage for states with higher rates then federal.

  • Current legislative activity and what it means to employers

  • Details of  federal regulation changes, what they are and when do we as employers need to be ready

  • Impacts of changes to companies and best practices on how to handle them

  • Review Federal Overtime Requirements

  • Exempt vs. non-exempt

  • Overtime Concerns

  • Regular Rate of Pay why it is important and how to calculate

  • State Overtime Requirements

  • State by State Review

  • Learn best practices on how you or employers can be prepared to implement the new rules and make sure employers on compliant by Jan 1 of 2020.

  • For employees who will become non-exempt, employers should consider adjusting employee schedules, especially those which allow for flexible hours and remote working options.

  • Employers should ensure that the timekeeping and payroll systems are updated to reflect any changes in employees’ exempt/non-exempt statuses.

  • Employees transitioned to a non-exempt status should be trained on timekeeping systems and proper timekeeping practices to capture all time worked (not limited to work performed on smartphones, on remote access systems, etc. – or eliminating employees' ability to conduct such work away from the office).

  • Employers who consider conducting audits must ensure that current classifications are proper and to determine if any other exemptions may apply to employees that otherwise will be brought into the non-exempt category by the new Rule.
