Is your organization ready to comply with the biggest change to wage-and-hour law in more than a decade?

The DOL published the final version of the much anticipated overtime exemption rule on May 18, 2016. The changes raise the minimum salary threshhold required to qualify for the FLSA's "white collar" exemption to $47,476 per year.

4.2 million salaried, non-manufacturing workers nationwide will now be entitled to overtime, with a direct cost to employers of almost $1.5 billion in increased employee earnings.

Don't get caught with your head in the sand. Learn what steps to take to NOW comply with the new rules, quickly and efficiently.
