About This Course:
While employers around the country are looking at the looming changes to the federal overtime regulations, effective December 1, Golden State employers need to worry about California-specific changes, too.

In April, Governor Brown signed into law a bill that will gradually increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022. That will affect the basis test for white-collar exempt status. Within just the next two years, the minimum exempt salary for California will increase to $54,080, which beats the federal minimum exempt salary of $51,168 planned for 2020.

So what does this mean for employers? Will you have to scramble, redefining jobs and job duties? Will more and more highly paid professionals also qualify for overtime pay, unless their salaries are hiked?

Join us when two experienced California-based employment attorneys will provide valuable insight into how to untangle the web of California and federal regulations around employment. You’ll leave with a better understanding of how new regulations will affect exempt and non-exempt employee status here in your state.
