    FLSA Update – Preparing for the DOL “White Collar” Overtime Regulations

    The newly proposed DOL "white collar" overtime regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), when enacted in late 2016, will impact every employer and 11 million employees! Kara will discuss the current rules, how they will change in 2016, and how you can prepare your organization—including budgeting for the change, deciding whether to give raises to meet the new thresholds, managing workweek hours, and paying hourly and overtime rates.
