Salary Regulations Webinar
Implementing the Department of Labor’s New Salary Basis Regulations
Wednesday, June 29, 2016 // 10:00 – 11:00 A.M.
On May 18, 2016, the federal Department of Labor (DOL) issued final regulations to roll out significant changes regarding the payment of salaries to exempt employees. The DOL’s proposed regulatory changes dramatically increase the level of salary that an employee must be paid in order to be exempt from overtime compensation. In addition, the regulations cause the required salary level to be subject to automatic future adjustments. These new regulations go into effect on December 1, 2016, giving employers only a short window to adjust employee compensation to comply with them.
This webinar will educate attendees regarding the effect of these new regulations on salaried employees and the compensation paid to them. Among other things, attendees will learn: (1) the framework of legal exemptions from paying minimum wage and overtime compensation; (2) the changes that the new regulations make to that framework; (3) the significant consequences of those changes; and (4) options for employers to react to the changes. Employers are not without options regarding how to address these developments, and this webinar will educate employers on the available choices.
