President Obama has directed the Department of Labor to revise the regulatory interpretation of the exemptions from overtime in the Fair Labor Standards Act. Our national wage/hour attorneys Mike Killeen, Sheehan Sullivan and Janet Grumer held an interactive webinar briefing and Q&A on President Obama's proposed changes to wage/hour exemptions under the FLSA.
The webinar covered:
- A summary of what changes are being proposed and what exemptions could result
- By what means wage/hour laws are being changed and employers' voice in this process
- When amendments will likely take effect
- How employers will be impacted and what you can do now to prepare
