Department of Labor's Proposed Regulations Concerning Overtime Eligibility

July 8, 2015 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (Eastern)
Ends: 1:00 PM (Eastern)

Please join us for the a webinar devoted to the Department of Labor’s proposed regulations concerning the white collar exemptions to the Fair Labor Standards Act.

On June 30, the DOL published its long-awaited revisions to the wage-hour regulations concerning overtime eligibility under the FLSA.  These proposed changes include the requirement that any employee earning less than approximately $50,000 be made eligible for overtime.  In addition, changes may be coming to the “duties tests” underlying the FLSA exemptions.  The proposed regulations confirm that employers should review their employee classifications and prepare to adapt to the coming rules.

Among the topics our panelists will discuss are the following:

  • The new salary threshold requirement and its implications
  • Likely changes in the “job duties” aspect of the exemptions
  • The impact of the regulations on overtime compliance, including the tracking of hours worked and time reporting requirements
  • Best practices for the review of FLSA classifications for employees in “gray areas”
  • Financial consequences of the proposed changes
