DOL Final Overtime Exemption Rule Halted: The Practical Impact On Your Business Explained
|Date / Time:
Alert: A federal court in Texas has effectively halted the DOL’s final overtime exemption rule, set to take effect December 1, 2016, by granting a preliminary injunction. The ultimate fate of the final rule is still up in the air, and employers of all sizes across the country have many pressing questions on what the court’s ruling means for their workplaces.
Register for this breaking webinar when BLR editor Cathy Gray will address many pressing questions and provide practical answers to help you navigate the uncertainty.
About your presenter:
- What to do if you’ve already adjusted employees’ schedules to factor in their overtime eligibility under the final rule, which would have gone into effect on December 1
- Your options when addressing whether to provide a salary increase that exceeds the new salary basis minimum threshold, or what to do if you have already raised salaries to that level
- What to do now about job classifications you’ve gone ahead and reclassified as overtime-eligible—could switching them back to exempt cause legal headaches?
- The impact this development could have on new bonus plan structures
- How to communicate with your workforce about the uncertainly this development presents
- Whether the benefits of proceeding as though the final rule has gone into effect outweigh the cons

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
