Overtime Chaos: New Rules, New Court Rulings Require Response
$250K and entitled to overtime? The Supreme Court says “You bet!”
In this 75-minute interactive online training, you will learn:
How to avoid the overtime trap the Supreme Court just set
How to prepare for the coming Biden overtime rules
Which jobs to self-audit to assure properly classified exempt status
DOL raises salary threshold:
Millions more eligible for overtime pay
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has been around for nearly a century. It provides for a federal minimum wage plus sets rules for which workers are entitled to overtime, among other rules. The law and its regulations are an established part of the HR landscape. Yet recent court decisions and pending litigation may bring big changes to how employers classify exempt and hourly workers, as do new ways of working and the technology that allows it. Plus, any day now, the DOL is set to announce all new proposed overtime regulations that are expected to raise the salary level for exempt employees high enough to blow any labor budget.
Take this spring’s big Supreme Court decision. A very well-paid oil industry worker sued his employer for paying a handsome daily rate instead of a weekly regular salary of at least the minimum current level. According to the Supreme Court, that was a big mistake. Because he wasn’t paid on “a salary basis,” he didn’t qualify as exempt. His employer owes him overtime at $2,011.50 per hour!
Fortunately, it’s not all bad news. Another recent case lets employers more easily classify highly compensated employees as exempt - if you know how to draft the right language in their job descriptions. Plus, you’ll learn all about a pending case that may upend everything you know about overtime rules and why you should be watching it progress through the legal system.
