About This Course:
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.

Learning Objectives
  • 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
