The clock is ticking…December 1, 2016, is the date that new salary requirements for exempt “white collar” workers take effect. As an employer, it is critical that you understand the rules and evaluate whether you need to make changes to employees’ job duties, work schedules, or wages.
Join Vigilant for a complimentary webinar on June 23, 2016, to review the new requirements and learn about your options for compliance. We’ll cover real-life questions that employers are already asking, along with your burning questions, as we discuss:
- Types of jobs that may qualify for exemption from overtime
- New salary levels to maintain exemptions from overtime
- How to use bonuses and incentives to meet the salary requirements
- Temporary non-enforcement policy for certain providers of Medicaid-funded services
- Unique state law considerations in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana
- Recommendations for assessing your organization’s risk
- Options for complying with the new rules
Now is the time to start evaluating your organization’s legal vulnerabilities and establishing a plan for compliance. The U.S. Department of Labor announced these new regulations under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) with great fanfare, expecting that millions of U.S. workers will receive higher wages as a result.
Our one-hour webinar is Thursday, June 23, 2016, at 10 a.m. Pacific/ 1p.m. Eastern. The webinar is complimentary, but you must register online or contact Julie Holser at 503-620-1710 to attend.
