DOL Overtime
DOL Overtime: 
What To Do Now And How To Determine If Your Employee Really Is Exempt

The SEAC is making 2017 the year of risk reduction!  Join the SEAC and Erica L. Rosasco of McKague Rosasco PC on January 11, 2017 at noon for an informative webinar to address the Department of Labor's (DOL's) new overtime rules and the classification of employees as exempt from overtime.   California usually sets the minimum salary requirement for an employee to be considered exempt from overtime pay.  This was set to change dramatically on December 1, 2016.  However, a federal judge in Texas has blocked the DOL's new federal overtime rule, which would have raised the Fair Labor Standards Act's (FLSA's) salary threshold for exemption from overtime pay from $23,660 to $47,476.  Now, this decision is on appeal with a new administration set to take over in just a few weeks.  This has left many employers in limbo and wondering what they should do.  It is estimated that 40% of overtime exempt employees will get a pay increase if the DOL rule takes effect.   During this webinar, you will learn what employers should do with the pending increase to the minimum salary requirement for exempt employees, what happens if you increase salaries only to have the rule never take effect and whether you can or should undo a pay increase.    
It is critical for employers to understand the salary minimum is only half of the test to determine if an employee is properly classified as exempt.  The law also requires that employees spend 50% or more of their time in "exempt duties."  Many employers do not understand what qualifies as "exempt duties."  This webinar will also address what qualifies as exempt duties and the common pitfalls of what you may be doing to lose an employee's exempt status.   You  will also learn what happens if your employee is improperly classified as exempt and how you can avoid liability for employee misclassification. 
What You'll Learn:
  • The current status of the DOL's overtime rule;
  • What you can and should do now;
  • The current minimum salary for overtime exempt employees;
  • The current schedule of increases for the salary of overtime exempt employees;
  • The tests for determining if an employee meets the exempt duties requirements;
  • The liability that can result from misclassification of an employee as exempt;
  • How to deal with correcting misclassification errors;
  • How and when you can deduct from an exempt worker's pay; and
  • How to reduce your legal liability for 2017! 
Who Should Attend:
  • Employers;
  • Business Owners;
  • HR Managers;
  • Chief Financial Officers; and
  • Payroll and Accounting Managers and personnel. 
Lawsuits over the misclassification of employees continue to plague employers and can be extremely costly.   In addition to lawsuits, the misclassification of employees has been a hot issue for the IRS and Department of Labor.  Agencies have been ramping up their audits for employers who classify workers as exempt from overtime.  If you were audited today, would your business pass the test?  Start your new year off on the right track by reducing your legal liability in 2017.   If you have employees classified as exempt, you do not want to miss this informative webinar.
