Labor & Employment Section CLE

Topic: Updated Fair Labor Standards Act Overtime Regulations
Speakers: Stephanie S. Rojo, Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons, L.L.P. | Ann Price, Boulette Golden & Marin, L.L.P.

This presentation will cover the Department of Labor’s final regulatory updates going into effect on December 1, 2016, which significantly impact the Fair Labor Standards Act’s “white collar” (executive, administrative, and professional) exemptions from overtime protection, as well as the highly compensated employee overtime exemption.  The presentation will address the changes to the required salary level for the exemptions, the Department of Labor’s stated reasoning behind the changes, the method of calculating automatic updates to the salary level and frequency of those updates, and the inclusion of nondiscretionary bonuses and other incentive pay toward meeting the minimum salary level.  The presentation will also cover best practices for employers as they respond to the changes.

Deadline to RSVP is Tuesday Sept. 6, 2016.
