DOL EXEMPTION CHANGES: PAY, PROBLEMS AND POSSIBILITIES

June 8, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

| $95.00

2015 HRCI Approved Provider SealPay is the “hottest” workplace issue today, whether it involves changes to the salary thresholds for exempt employees, the “Fight for 15” effort, pay equity or stagnant wages. Every year for the past five years wage and hour collective action lawsuits have increased, while employment lawsuits overall have declined. The salary changes to exempt status, which become effective on December 1, 2016, affect approximately 4.7 million employees, but the focus on this area will lead other employees to question whether they are properly classified. And exempt employees who are reclassified to non-exempt may question whether they have been misclassified all along.

We will cover the following Wage and Hour issues and, of course, respond to your questions:

  • Review of new salary regulations.
  • Analyze how bonuses and incentives count toward the new salary threshold.
  • Anticipating and avoiding the likely pitfalls for a new group of timekeepers.
  • Consider when an employer can make deductions from an exempt employee’s salary.
  • Review alternative pay systems to hourly non-exempt.
  • Implementing the change from exempt to non-exempt without provoking a Wage and Hour investigation or lawsuit.
  • Frequently asked questions employers can anticipate from employees and our suggested responses.
  • Other hot Wage and Hour areas:
    • Break time, travel time, overtime and smartphone time.
    • Incentives, shift differentials, two or more pay rates.
    • Charges against an employee’s pay: uniforms, tools, failure to return property, loans.
