The New FLSA White Collar Regulations: What Employers Need to Know and Do
On May 18, 2016, the USDOL issued a new rule which changes the overtime exemption regulations for exempt executive, administrative, and professional workers (white collar workers). This change will more than double the minimum salary required for a worker to qualify for these exemptions. An estimated 4.2 million workers are expected to lose their exempt status under the new rule. Your organization likely has workers that will lose their overtime exemption under the new rule. We encourage all of our employer clients to analyze the impact of the new rule now, and to prepare to make the necessary changes to employee classifications, payroll practices, and other relevant policies. This workshop will equip you do to just that.
We will explain:
- The new regulations and their impact on employers and workers
- The changes employers need to make to implement the new regulations
- How to communicate with workers about the change; how to manage the problems of recording work time and avoiding off-the-clock work
- Pay options for non-exempt workers, including how to pay non-exempt workers a salary
- Other potential consequences of shifting a significant number of workers from exempt to non-exempt status
This workshop will also review the often-overlooked job duties requirements that a worker must satisfy in order to qualify for a white-collar overtime exemption. With the appropriate education and preparation, employers can prepare themselves to effectively deal with this significant change in the law and minimize the negative consequences it could have on your organization.
This workshop is appropriate for human resources professionals, payroll professionals, finance professionals, business owners, and anyone else in your organization who is impacted by the FLSA's minimum wage and overtime requirements.
