What You Need to Know About New FLSA Overtime Exemption Rules
Tuesday, May 31, 2016 6:10 AM

Attend a Special Webinar Hosted by the HR Council & Compliance Council

Recently, the U. S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced the publication of a final rule amending the white-collar overtime exemptions to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The final rule increased the salary threshold to be considered as exempt from overtime, as well as the total compensation requirement needed to exempt highly compensated employees. How does this affect you?

Join us for a special webinar hosted by the Cornerstone HR Council and the Cornerstone Compliance Council and find out what you need to know and how you should prepare.

Date:  Thursday, June 16, 2016
Time: 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. CT
More information and registration.

The DOL also established a mechanism for automatically updating salary and compensation levels every three years, and amends the salary basis test to allow for a specified percentage of non-discretionary bonuses and incentives to be considered in establishing salary levels. 

Cost is free to HR Council and Compliance Council members. Non-council members will pay only $25, which includes a 2016 membership for either council.
