Third Thursday Webinar: The New Federal Overtime Regulations

May 19, 2016 • Webinar

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

Please join us for the next edition of Third Thursday – Crowell & Moring’s Labor and Employment Update, a webinar series dedicated to helping our clients stay on top of developing law and emerging compliance issues.

Our topic this month is the new federal overtime regulations, expected to be published by the Department of Labor (DOL) imminently, which will set forth changes in the wage-hour laws that will impact virtually every employer coast to coast.

DOL is expected in the next few days to issue final regulations that were first issued for "notice and comment" last June. After receiving more than 250,000 comments, DOL finalized the regulations in March. These regulations are expected to more than double the salary threshold for exemption from overtime and make various smaller adjustments to existing regulations. DOL is expected to provide employers only 60 days to implement the changes. In the days ahead, we can expect legislative and judicial challenges to these new regulations, but we should also expect them to take effect in July 2016.

Our panelists will discuss the coverage, scope and implementation issues that arise under these new regulations and provide practical advice for compliance.
