The Department of Labor (DOL) recently released updated rules increasing the salary level used under the Fair Labor Standards Act to determine if employees are classified as exempt from overtime. The new rules go into effect starting December 1, 2016 with the key change being that salaried workers paid up to $47,476 annually must be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours in a work week. This is the first update to overtime regulations in nearly 12 years and doubles the maximum salary allowed for overtime pay. Is your organization prepared and have a plan for the financial impact?
Make sure you are informed and prepared by joining the Community Foundation for the Overtime Regulations and the Impact for Nonprofits seminar Wednesday, June 29 from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne (555 E. Wayne St.). Thomas M. Kimbrough, Partner Barrett McNagny LLP will discuss the new rule and its implications for organizations, as well as provide helpful tips on discussing the rule with employees.
Thomas M. Kimbrough provides counseling and representation to union and non-union employers in every aspect of employee relations and employment law. He also exclusively represents, counsels, and defends corporations and professional organizations in a number of labor and employment cases. With more than 30 years of experience in defense of companies in discrimination and employment related claims, Thomas also has extensive experience in handling other litigation claims, including insurance defense.
