New Final Rule on Overtime Organizations in Limbo after the Nationwide Injunction

On May 18, 2016 the DOL issued the long-awaited Final Rule on Overtime under the FLSA. This Final Rule on Overtime was expected to impact over 4 million workers and will mean that although they previously were classified as "exempt" within the meaning of the FLSA, they now will not meet the new salary level threshold to be exempt and will have to be re-classified as non-exempt. Learn which of the proposed revisions made it to the Final Rule and which ones did not. However, Judge Amos Mazzant on August 31, 2017 issued a nationwide injunction holding that the DOL exceeded its authority when it raised the minimum salary threshold. The DOL appealed the injunction but then issued a "request for information" requesting the public's help for creating new rules. In particular, the request for information contained 11 questions the DOL is seeking the public's input on by September 25, 2017. This webinar will provide an in-depth review of where organization's currently stand and what you can expect regarding changes in the FLSA and the Final Rule:This live HR Webinar will provide an overview of this issue as well as up-to-date information on the status of the final rule in light of the request for information issued by the DOL.

This webinar will also review key concepts on how to classify employees as Exempt vs. Non-Exempt Classification under the Fair Labor Standards Act. This presentation will explain the federal government Final Rule to the FLSA clearly and concisely, and help your organization avoid liability in this very complex area. One of the fastest growing areas of employment litigation relates to employee claims of back wages and overtime for misclassified Exempt vs. Non-Exempt Classification employees. Damages typically run into the thousands and often millions of dollars. The Department of Labor has set aside millions of dollars in its recent budget to find and litigate against employers who misclassify their Exempt vs. Non-Exempt Classification employees.

HR Learning Center's live or recorded HR Webinar will set the record straight and help employers prepare for the coming changes as a result of the responses to the DOL's request for information.
