Most employers are covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) which includes the requirements for which employees must be paid overtime pay. This law has often been difficult for small employers. Many do not understand the rules covering which employees can be considered exempt from the law. This has resulted in both legal and regulatory actions against organizations of all sizes.
On December 1, 2016, the salary level test for FLSA changes. The other two tests to determine which employees are covered by the law (often called ‘non-exempt’) are remaining the same. The webinar recording below (also found in our resource library here) will help you to assess what your options are and how to make the needed changes in ways that will support and enhance your organization’s future. In addition to giving you specific ways to define the changed salary level’s impact on your organization, we talk about steps to prepare now. Additionally, although the duties test and salary basis portions of the law are unchanged, we offer information on both with a focus on the most common errors small organizations make. A copy of the annotated slides from the webinar are on our Resource page here.
This webinar and the annotated slides cover businesses, non-profits, charities, and all employers. We hope you find them useful in preparing your organization for the new salary levels and for auditing your current compliance with the duties test to ensure you correct any issues there as well.
