Are You Ready for the New Overtime Regulations?

October 13, 2016

The December 1, 2016 compliance deadline is fast approaching. New federal regulations will impact more than 4.2 million employees and change the landscape in almost every American workplace. Employers are finding that compliance is complex and has unexpected consequences. By popular demand of those who were unable to attend our live seminars earlier this summer, Dykema is providing a complimentary webinar which will examine the new rules—what has changed and what employers must do to conform their business practices to these modified regulations and avoid substantial penalties.

Dykema labor and employment lawyers Robert A. Boonin (Michigan), Jack Schaedel (California), and Daniel R. Stern (Texas) will discuss:

  • Status of challenges to DOL authority to implement new regulations
  • The new minimum salary test for exempt employees
  • When and how the minimum will be adjusted
  • Who will be a “highly compensated employee” under the new test
  • How incentive pay factors into the salary level test
  • Options for preserving exempt statuses and reclassifying exempt employees to non-exempt
  • Changes to compensation and benefit plans that will need to be considered
  • Options for communicating changes and related issues to employees
