FLSA Changes: A Look Into the DOL’s Proposed Overtime Rule and How You Can Prepare



Presenters: Adam Childers, Crowe & Dunlevy; Caleb Masters, Paycom

Original Program Date: July 2019 (available for on-demand viewing through October 2019)

Program length: 60 minutes

In this webcast, Crowe & Dunlevy's Adam Childers and Paycom's Caleb Masters go in-depth on the U.S. Department of Labor's proposed rule to boost the salary threshold at which workers are eligible to receive overtime, making a major change to employee exemption criteria under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This will extend overtime protections to more than a million currently exempt workers making less than $35,308 per year. 

This proposed salary level threshold increase could represent financial and operational challenges for employers, who now must evaluate how their employees are scheduled and paid in order to make the types of workforce decisions that will mitigate their labor costs and their exposure under the FLSA.

Childers and Masters will provide an overview of the proposed rule, five potential challenges employers may face and four potential solutions to those challenges.
