Proposed New Overtime Rules: What Employers Need to Know Now


Proposed New Overtime Rules: What Employers Need to Know Now

Date & Time
April 4, 2019
2:00 PM - 3:15 PM EDT

Center for Competitive Management (C4CM)

Rebecca Canary-King will cover the nuts and bolts of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) proposed changes to overtime regulations. They will discuss how, if implemented, these changes will raise the minimum salary threshold for the Fair Labor Standard Act’s “white collar” exemption and will make more than one million additional workers eligible for overtime. Topics will include:

  • How will the DOL’s proposed overtime exemption rules affect the current salary basis test and the salary level threshold that’s required for exemption?
  • When would the DOL’s rules be finalized and likely to take effect?
  • What can your organization do right now to prepare for these changes?
  • Will the duties tests for the executive, administrative and professional exemptions change under the new regulations and require you to review all exempt positions?
  • Should you convert exempt workers to hourly status rather than pay increased weekly base salary?
  • Should you rewrite your job descriptions? If so, how?
  • When can nondiscretionary bonuses and commissions be used to meet the new salary threshold? 
  • Are there increased recordkeeping obligations?

CLE credit is pending.
