BLR’s rebroadcast of our highly rated virtual workshop, DOL’s Final Overtime Exemption Rules: How to Audit White-Collar Classifications Amid Major Changes, is a half-day event designed to:
  • Update you on how the final rules differ from what the DOL initially proposed, so you’ll know precisely where to focus your overtime exemption auditing efforts
  • Teach you how to analyze existing white-collar exemptions to determine what options are available and whether those jobs must be reclassified as non-exempt, and entitled to overtime compensation, as a result of the DOL’s final overtime exemption rules.
Learning Objectives
  • Tips on how to analyze whether your exempt positions will pass or fall the DOL Wage and Hour Division’s “misclassification test” under the new federal rules
  • The key ways in which the new DOL overtime white-collar exemption requirements differ from the rules HR professionals have grown used to
  • The types of jobs that are a high risk for misclassification under the new regulations
  • Key questions to ask when examining positions you’ve classified as white-collar and outside sales exempt
  • Red-flag exemption classification situations that demand immediate correction
  • Practical strategies for getting information you need to proceed with your audit
  • Evaluating the available options, including a look at the pros and cons of each
  • How to classify ambiguous “gray area” jobs for overtime eligibility
  • Correcting misclassification errors with minimal collateral damage
BONUS: Attendees will receive an excerpt from our new report Overtime Primer: Highlights from the New Regulations, including information on the salary level test, the salary basis test, and a flow chart for exemption status under FLSA.
