Upcoming seminar: DOL’s proposed overtime rule

November 6, 2015

In July, 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in response to President Obama’s 2014 executive order.  The NPRM will effectively double the minimum salary necessary to classify a worker as “exempt” from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime regulations.  It is estimated that over 5 million currently exempt, salaried employees will be affected by the increased salary threshold.

Additional changes under consideration by the DOL include:

  • a mechanism to automatically adjust EAP and HCE standard salary levels
  • including nondiscretionary bonuses when calculating the standard salary threshold
  • modification of EAP duties tests

Join us on December 10, for a presentation by Michael C. Schmidt, Vice Chair, Labor and Employment Department, Cozen O’Connor, to explore the extent of these proposed changes and what they mean to your organization’s human resources.

There is no cost to attend.  Space is limited.  Register today!
