DOL Overtime Exemption Rule Is Final: Key Compliance Deadlines And Immediate Action Items
|Date / Time:
You’ve only got until December 1 to get in compliance with the DOL’s final overtime exemption rule, which is predicted to impact more than 4 million salaried workers across the country.
These workers will become newly eligible for overtime in just a few weeks, and that leaves very little time for you to reclassify employees to non-exempt status, communicate the practical impact the change will have on those newly overtime-eligible employees, and train the workforce on proper timekeeping and reporting to ensure overtime compensation is paid as owed.
In addition, workplaces will be under additional scrutiny as a result of the final rule taking effect. That means right now is the best time to re-examine overtime exemption classifications for all of your employees to ensure proper classification under the duties tests.
Join us when two Washington insiders, attorney Burton Fishman and economist Nathan Woods, will tell you the exact action plan you need to set into motion now to ensure that you’re in compliance by the effective date of the DOL’s final rule.
About Your Presenters:
- How to prepare in the next few weeks to ensure compliance with the fast-approaching deadlines under the DOL’s final overtime exemption rule
- Why you should be taking a close look at the duties tests, as they apply to your employees, before December 1
- Tips for employers in various industries as you work through your white-collar classifications under the administrative, professional, and executive exemptions
- The new salary basis and minimum salary threshold
- And much, much more!
