Overcoming the Overtime Blues

By now, you have heard that the Department of Labor released the new requirements for determining whether an employee is eligible for overtime pay. The new rule substantially increases the minimum salary amount that an exempt (non-overtime eligible) employee must earn from $23,660 to $47,476. Prudent employers will need to prepare for the changes NOW! There are a myriad of practical and strategic consideration that companies face in grappling with the best way to effectively manage the payroll expense implications while simultaneously balancing employee morale issues.

On June 1, 2016 and June 6, 2016, in Cincinnati, ERA will offer a full-debriefing of the new rule led by Barbara Barrett, former Senior Investigator for the DOL & current Compliance Consultant for ERA and Jeff Shoskin, Esq., Partner with Frost, Brown, Todd, LLC and again on June 8, 2016, in Columbus, by Barbara Barrett, and Dawn Hays, Esq., Director and Counsel, ERA Columbus Office.

The session will provide in-depth, expert knowledge on the practical implications of the new rule, tips for conducting a job classification review, the pros and cons of using the fluctuating workweek as an alternative method, strategic considerations for preserving exemptions, employee benefits considerations, managing employee morale, and a host of other important practical considerations.
