Complimentary Webinar Presented by Michael D. Billok and the Capital Region Human Resource Association (CRHRA)

The U.S. Department of Labor’s final regulations revising the white collar exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act go into effect on December 1, 2016. As a result of these revised regulations, it is anticipated that millions of employees who are not currently eligible for overtime pay will become eligible unless their weekly salaries are raised to the new threshold of $913.00 per week. Employers need to make some significant decisions by December 1 regarding which employees will need to be reclassified, how to transition those employees from exempt to non-exempt, and how to manage the risk of liability. This webinar will summarize the final regulations, provide some proactive risk management strategies, and identify some practical options for reclassifying employees.
