  • (1888PressRelease) August 07, 2018 - This two-hour event is scheduled on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 @ 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM (ET).

    Event Synopsis:
    One significant development in employment law in 2017 was the declaration of the Obama-era final overtime rule as invalid by a federal district court in Texas. The rule would have doubled the minimum salary level required to qualify for certain Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime exemptions. The battle is far from over, though. In its fall regulatory agenda, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced that a new rule proposal to increase the minimum salary level should be expected in October 2018.

    Employers should remain vigilant of the significant updates and developments to both federal and state wage-and-hour requirements. They should keep themselves abreast with the changes in the applicable wage-and-hour laws to be able to mitigate the risks and pitfalls that may arise.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help employers and counsel understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the Overtime Rule’s current status as well as what to expect with the new overtime rule proposal. Speakers will also offer best practices to avoid common pitfalls and risk issues.

    Key topics include:

    • The 2016 Final Overtime Rule: An Overview
    • Recent Updates and Developments
    • The New Overtime Rule Proposal: What to Expect
    • Potential Risks and Pitfalls
