Are Your Exempt Employees Really Exempt? What the New DOL Overtime Rule Means for Your Company

Recorded On: 07/14/2016

Business owners are scrambling to understand the new Fair Labor Standards Act rules slated to go into effect this coming December. What's the problem? Under the new rules, many employee earning less than $913 per week will automatically be entitled to overtime!

During this webinar participants will:

  1. Understand the legal requirements for determining whether an employee is an “exempt” employee
  2. Understand how to determine whether any of your current exempt employees need to be paid overtime including a review of Job descriptions and job titles—consistency throughout organization and hours worked by the employees, including expectations for off-hours availability
  3. Understand how to use time sheets properly to keep track of all hours worked

Please join us and hear from attorney Maureen Murphy, partner with Kopon Airdo and Karla Dobbeck, president of Human Resource Techniques to learn what you need to do, how to do it and how to communicate the changes to your staff.
