"The DOL's Final Rule Revising Overtime Exemptions is Here. Now what? Everything Employers Need to Know to Comply with Minimal Business Impact"

Date   May 23, 2016

Recorded: Monday, May 23, 2016.

Please join FordHarrison attorneys for a complimentary webinar on the anticipated USDOL regulations revising the White Collar exemptions.

This week, the U.S. Department of Labor is expected to publish its long-awaited Final Rule revising the standards needed to meet the white collar exemptions.   The Final Rule will be the DOL's first major revision to the white collar exemptions since 2004, and will result in millions of workers gaining eligibility for overtime.  While the final regulations have yet to be issued, it is anticipated that the DOL will virtually double the minimum monetary threshold needed for employees to qualify for exemption from overtime under the white collar exemptions.  This is a substantial change from the standards that have been in place for the last decade and will force employers to make hard decisions on how to handle the numerous employees who will now become overtime eligible. 

This webinar will discuss and provide a comprehensive evaluation on how the DOL's regulations will affect overtime eligibility, the impact and challenges to employers, and strategies to assist employers in complying with and preparing for the implementation of these regulations.
