Impact Of DOL’s Final Overtime Rule On Compensation Strategy And Employee Benefits: Total Reward And Workforce Engagement Concerns

Webinar: ID# 1023006
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
The Department of Labor’s (DOL) final overtime exemption rule, which takes effect December 1, 2016, will more than double the salary threshold, from $23,660 to $47,476, for an estimated 4.2 million workers nationwide. Anyone earning less than the new salary threshold who works over 40 hours in a workweek will become eligible for overtime. And the salary threshold for highly paid executives is increasing, too, from $100,000 to $134,000.

If you’re an employer with employees who now fall over the cutoff for overtime, but won’t come December 1, you’ve probably given the new overtime rule plenty of thought. But have you thought about the opportunities it presents?

There’s no better time than the present to rethink staffing, manage workforce hours, distinguish between the employee and his or her job assignment, communicate with management and employees, and reflect on (and possibly even improve) your compensation strategy.

Your strategic response to the new rule could have a significant impact on your company’s payroll expense and profitability. It could also have a strong impact on the perceptions and attitude of particular employee groups, such as Millennials. For instance, will changes in pay status impact their perception of their worth to their employers, the value they place on work flexibility, and opportunities to work autonomously?

Join us for an all-new webinar on how to manage your compensation strategy, the issue of pay compression, employee benefits and more, in light of the DOL’s final rule. David W. Jones, CCP and Daniel T. Steelman of Matthews Young Management Consulting, will provide real-life examples on how companies are dealing with the tough challenges that lie ahead, and expert insights into how to address payroll and benefits concerns tied to the new rule.
