On May 18, President Obama announced the publication of the Department of Labor's final rule updating the overtime regulations, which will automatically extend overtime pay protections to over 4 million workers within the first year of implementation.This rule, which goes into effect December 1, 2016, applies to employees in the private sector as well as those in federal, state, and local governments and will effect approximately 28,000 salaried workers in Nebraska.
Employers need to act now to evaluate jobs and make decisions on employee pay in order to become compliant with the new rules on December 1, 2016. Very few employers are exempt from the new rules. Management at every organization needs to know what changes must be made.
At the seminar on July 25, attendees will learn what overtime laws are changing, what makes a position non-exempt or exempt according to overtime laws, how to properly classify positions, learn record keeping methods and explore efficient solutions to meet business needs.
