Join former Department of Labor (DOL) Wage and Hour Administrator Tammy McCutchen for an in-depth look at proposed wage and hour changes that are sure to affect employers. Most notably, the DOL has proposed increasing the minimum annual salary for most employees exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act's overtime requirements from its current level of $23,660 to $35,308.
The DOL estimates that an additional 1.1 million workers who currently do not qualify for overtime pay will become eligible under the new rules. McCutchen will discuss what employers need to do to prepare for the changes.
But that's not all. Other key developments she will discuss include:
- Types of compensation that may be included and excluded from overtime pay calculations;
- What makes your organization a joint employer with subcontractors and franchisees; and
- Practical implications for your company.
It promises to be a webinar you cannot afford to miss.
