The New Overtime Rule—Are you Ready?

Lunch Presentation Description:
The U.S. Department of Labor recently announced its final rule to make an estimated 1.3 million American workers eligible for overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. The new rule will become effective January 1, 2020. Is your organization ready? Rembolt Ludtke employment law attorneys Mark Fahleson and Tara Paulson will discuss the history of the FLSA, the new requirements under the final rule, and strategies to help avoid an audit or lawsuit in the coming months.

The Fair Labor Standards Act—It’s Over 80 Years Old and Chances Are You Are Still Violating It.

The law has been around for over half a century, yet it is estimated that over 60 percent of employers are in violation of some provision of the FLSA. The afternoon session will give attendees a chance to learn about recent FLSA developments and opinion letters and will include law school-type hypotheticals to help foster a greater understanding of the complexities of the FLSA and what is required for compliance.

This program & workshop is valid for 3 PDCs toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification.
