New overtime regulations, the most sweeping in several decades, recently went into effect. These new regulations expand the number and type of workers who are entitled to overtime.  Managerial personnel and others not previously entitled to overtime are now eligible because the “salary base” has been increased. These new regulations will require a major sea-change in the practices of employers.  Failure to properly classify a worker as exempt from overtime or as non-exempt exposes employers to substantial financial liability.  This program will provide you with a real world guide to the new regulations, how they alter prior practice, best practices for avoiding liability, and a review of recent litigation surrounding the regulations.
