Changes Coming to Overtime Regulations: What You Need to Know – FREE
Sponsored by Bank of Colorado and Presented by: Tina Harkness, Esq., SPHR, SHRM-CP, Mountain States Employers Council
The rules governing which employees are exempt from federal overtime requirements are set to change December 1, 2016. The U.S. Department of Labor’s final regulations more than double the minimum salary level required for exempt employees. Formerly overtime-exempt employees making less than $913/week will be entitled to overtime. Every organization should be analyzing how this change will affect them and preparing to comply. This session will go over the new rule, the limited exceptions to the rule, approaches for minimizing business impact, and how to manage newly non-exempt employees.
