NEXT MONTHLY LUNCHEON - SEPTEMBER 5TH
FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT OVERTIME RULES UPDATE
Jenny Holt Teeter, J.D.
Gill, Ragon, Owen
Jenny will give us an overview of recent litigation related to the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime rules, including a review of the Encino Motor Cars case where the Supreme Court of the United States applied a more broad reading of an FLSA exemption rather than previously applied narrow construction. The Wage and Hour Division has recently settled investigations with roofing companies, restaurants, and multiple healthcare entities for over $60,000 related to overtime violations. The presentation will also cover the Department of Labor’s new compliance assistance tools that launched in June. We will also review recent guidance from the Department of Labor on several important topics surrounding payment of overtime, classification of employees, and when bonuses are required to be calculated at the regular rate.
