The Obama administration is gearing up to make big changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime rules.

Here to help you prepare is Tammy McCutchen, one of the nation's leading authorities on the FLSA. As a former administrator of the US Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division, and the primary architect of the 2004 changes to these regulations, Ms. McCutchen brings a unique insider's perspective that she will share in this upcoming webinar.

You will learn about:

  • The expected increase in the minimum annual salary for overtime-exempt employees from $23,660 to $50,440;
  • The methods being considered for adjusting the minimum salary threshold each year; and
  • How the duties tests will be changed, including whether DOL will adopt a California-style rule limiting the amount of time that exempt employees are allowed to spend performing nonexempt duties.
