On May 17, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor released its long-awaited changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act. The new regulations, which go into effect December 1, will extend overtime eligibility to millions of salaried American workers who are currently classified as exempt employees. For many employers, the impact — both financial and operational — could be very significant.

In this complimentary webinar, labor and employment lawyers Courtney Bru, Charlie Plumb and Paul Ross review the new overtime regulations, assist employers in properly classifying their employees, and discuss strategies and best practices for preparing for the changes.

Topics include:

  • Changes to the FLSA’s white collar exemption
  • Changes to FLSA’s highly compensated employee exemption
  • Determining whether exempt employees meet the duties test
  • Evaluating the potential impact of the overtime changes on payroll and operations
  • Employer options: Pay up or switch things up?
  • Educating employees about the new rules
  • Why now is a good time to review all compensation policies and practices
