Expanded and Expensive: How to prepare for the new DOL overtime rules
The heat is on, and employers are feeling the pressure like never before. A changing workforce, uncertain economy, ever-changing (and sometimes conflicting) laws with no clear guidance, hidden surprises in the law, ramped-up enforcement initiatives by state and federal authorities, and the increased potential for litigation only add to the pressures of everyday life in the workplace.
In their presentation titled “Expanded and Expensive: How to prepare for the new DOL overtime rules,” McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorneys Charlie Plumb and Anna Lukeman discuss the U.S. Department of Labor’s forthcoming changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime rules as it pertains to white collar exemptions, review the potential financial and operational impacts the new rules are likely to have on affected businesses, and provide employers with tips for preparing for the new overtime rules.
