Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippell LLP
The Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and the New Jersey State Wage and Hour Law ("NJWHL") require employers to pay all covered employees a minimum wage of $8.44 per hour, as well as1½ times the employee's regular rate of pay for each hour of working time over 40 hours in any workweek.

An employee may be "exempt" from overtime under these laws if the employer can prove that the employee works in a bona fide executive, administrative, or professional ("White Collar") capacity. Although there is no exhaustive list of job titles that meet these exemptions, the legislature has identified certain criteria that must be present, at a minimum, in order for an employee to meet the White Collar exemption status.  Employers should carefully consider this criteria before making any exemption determinations, as class actions lawsuits challenging employers who wrongfully classify employees as "exempt" are clogging both the state and federal courts.

CCSNJ Ambassadors assist the Chamber staff by welcoming new members and guests at events and by serving as connectors within the membership.  

As an extension of the Chamber staff, we help members maximize their time by making introductions, suggesting the appropriate events for new members and guests to attend, and by making follow-up introductions via email or in-person.

But you don't have to wear the "Ambassador" blue ribbon on your badge to do these things. Just look for the "Guest" or "New Member" ribbons at events and make sure to welcome folks. We are all Ambassadors and share a role in maintaining the excellent reputation of the CCSNJ!

Imagine being able to assist local charities by doing something as simple as offering your employees access to beverages in your facility. Coca-Cola, in partnership with CCSNJ, offers members access to the Vend4Cause program. Vending machines and/or coolers supported by Coca-Cola can be placed in your business and a portion of every dollar spent is given to a charity of your choice. For more information click here.
