No doubt you’ve seen the headlines. The Department of Labor has proposed massive changes to FLSA exemptions that will affect every employer. While the final rule is not expected to be handed down until later this year, there are steps you can take now and information you need before the final rules are issued to not get blindsided. In this presentation, Kara Craig, Staff Attorney for Archbright will:

  • Clarify components of the test and exemptions to FLSA minimum wage and overtime laws and application;
  • Identify proposed changes set forth in Department of Labor’s Proposed Rule, issued in July 2015, which amends FLSA exemption test;
  • Share the New Rule’s impact on workforce and employers;
  • Provide recommendations for employers regarding compliance and liability mitigation.
