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.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Community Engagement: Webinars July 20th and 25th

Dear Community Partners,

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Community Engagement section would like to share the following invitation with you:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) invites you to an upcoming webinar on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) FY 2016 Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Grant Program.

Last year, Secretary Johnson and the DHS Office for Community Partnerships identified the need to make direct awards to non-governmental organizations for community-based countering violent extremism programs. Congress has also been supportive of this effort by appropriating $10 million specifically to support local CVE efforts.

On July 6, 2016, DHS announced the FY 2016 CVE Grant Program. For the first time, non-governmental organizations will be eligible for DHS funding to promote community resilience against the threat of violent extremism.

A series of webinars have been scheduled to assist non-governmental organizations and institutions of higher education to understand the grant program’s goals, core elements, review process, and timeline and have an opportunity to ask questions about the information presented. For your convenience, we are offering the same webinar on two different dates.

The FY 2016 CVE Grant Program is funded by DHS and administered by FEMA.

WHAT: Webinar on the DHS FY 2016 CVE Grant Program

WHO: The DHS Office for Community Partnerships and FEMA Grant Program

WHEN: Wed., July 20, 2016 – 2 to 3 p.m. (EST)
Mon., July 25, 2015 – 2 to 3 p.m. (EST)

Building Welcoming Communities Campaign: Discussion on Immigration/Refugee Issues to Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA) November 16th

Dear Welcoming Community Leader:

Thank you again for your commitment to the Building Welcoming Communities Campaign (BWCC).

As many of you know, last month the White House hosted a national Building Welcoming Communities Convening. The convening provided a meaningful opportunity for local municipal governments to learn from each other, federal agencies to offer technical assistance, and national experts to share insights on emerging best practices. We would like to thank those of you that attended and made this convening a success.

This Month, as part of the monthly BWCC Webinar Series, we will host a conversation with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to discuss immigration/refugee issues related to the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA) and 2016 Open Enrollment. This webinar will take place on the week of November 16th. Please stay tuned for more details on how to sign-up for this webinar and to learn more about the Affordable Care Act and how it is working to increase access to affordable, quality healthcare in communities across the country.

Below are additional updates and resources.


We would like to thank all those who completed the BWCC Enrollment Form. Based on BWCC submissions, we have identified top areas for technical assistance needs. We will work with federal agencies and national partners to explore opportunities to provide technical assistance in each of these areas throughout 2016. Additionally, we will be setting up one-on-one conversations with participating BWCC cities and counties to get a better sense of immediate resources and tools we can provide.

The top eight (8) areas of need identified:

1. Expanding access to resources through language access policies, programs and practices.
2. Enhancing trust between communities and law enforcement through hiring practices, relationship building, public education and other mechanisms.
3. Harness immigrant professional talent through career ladder, credentialing, international student retention and other efforts focused on highly skilled immigrants.
4. Connecting communities by bringing people from across the community together through dialogues, events, mentoring projects and other opportunities.
5. Assess and better understand the community by improved data collection, setting priorities and identifying local resources.
6. Promoting citizenship awareness so that immigrants understand the benefits of naturalization and receiving communities welcome their newest citizens.
7. Adapt workforce systems by convening key workforce, education and immigrant stakeholders to identify areas of opportunity as well as for improvements
8. Support entrepreneurship by strengthening local ecosystems and networks, accelerating business development and positive communications.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the enrollment form, please let us know or contact Cynthia at
