U.S. Department of Labor schedules two additional webinars on the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime final rule

U.S. Department of Labor schedules two additional webinars on the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime final rule

 

On September 25, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) published a final rule to make 1.3 million American workers newly eligible for overtime pay.

 

 

The final rule updates the earnings thresholds necessary to exempt executive, administrative and professional employees from the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) minimum wage and overtime pay requirements, and allows employers to count a portion of certain bonuses and commissions towards meeting the salary level. The new thresholds account for growth in employee earnings since the thresholds were last updated in 2004.

 

Due to the overwhelming response received for the overtime final rule webinar on November 4, the Wage and Hour Division has scheduled two additional webinars to provide compliance assistance on the final rule on:

 

  • Provisions of the final rule so that employers can comply with the changes and inform workers and their advocates of their rights
  • Specific changes that the final rule will make when it becomes effective on January 1, 2020
  • Detailed information about new materials and resources available on the overtime final rule website

Throughout the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to submit questions. Wage and Hour Division hosts will answer as many of those questions as possible following the presentation.

 

The webinar will be presented on November 12, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time and on November 19, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

 

Register for the webinar on November 12, 2019

 

Register for the webinar on November 19, 2019

 

After registering, you will receive an email with detailed log-in information for the webinar.

 

A recording of the webinar will be posted on the Wage and Hour Division’s overtime final rule website after the live presentation.
