Webinar Details

It’s finally happened! The long wait is over. The United States Department of Labor just released its new overtime exemption rules, they’ve been finalized and they went into effect on January 1, 2020. For many employers that means that many of the positions it had previously classified as exempt from overtime requirements will not be any longer – unless these employees receive a salary increase equal to or greater than the new salary threshold. The new salary rules are expected to impact at least a million workers nationwide, and to result in a significant increase in the number of employees who will be eligible for overtime pay.

Penalties for non-compliance with the FLSA's overtime rules can be severe. Non-compliant employers can face a DOL audit, a lawsuit or even an administrative charge.
