Effective December 1, the Department of Labor will require employers to meet greater salary thresholds regarding overtime exemptions.  Any business that employs exempt workers with salaries under $47,476 are directly affected by the new regulations and need to consider their best course of action for each affected employee. What’s the impact going to be on your agency?  What do you need to do to prepare for this?  What do you need to do to comply?  What are your options?   Have you done anything?

It’s not business as usual and compliance is mandatory.   If you haven’t begun preparing for this significant disruption in how business has been done, this exclusive webinar for NAILBA member agency principals and staff will address:

  • The basics of the new regulations.
  • Traps created by the “white collar” exemptions.
  • How will the presidential election affect the fate of the FLSA overtime rule?
  • Do we give them the raise…or change their classification?
  • How commissions, incentive pay and bonuses affect the minimum salary threshold.
  • The Highly paid executive exemption.
  • How independent contractors are affected…or not.


    Learner Outcomes:

  • Understand the impact of the new FLSA rules on your organization
  • Gain insight into classifying nonexempt employees and/or reevaluating workloads  to minimize labor expenses
  • Find new resources and tools to help calculate your costs in your state
  • Learn who is directly affected
