On September 25, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) published a final rule to make 1.3 million American workers eligible for overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
The final rule updates the earnings thresholds necessary to exempt executive, administrative, or professional employees from the FLSA’s minimum wage and overtime pay requirements, and allows employers to count a portion of certain bonuses/commissions towards meeting the salary level.
On Monday, November 4, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, the Wage and Hour Division will offer a public webinar to provide compliance assistance on the final rule on:
• Provisions of the final rule so that employers can comply with the changes and inform workers and their advocates of their rights
• Specific changes that the final rule will make when it becomes effective on January 1, 2020
• Detailed information about new materials and resources available on the overtime final rule website
Throughout the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to submit questions. Wage and Hour Division hosts will answer as many of those questions as possible following the presentation.
