The Department of Labor recently announced revised regulations affecting certain kinds of employees who may be treated as “exempt” from the federal Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) overtime and minimum-wage requirements. Effective December 1, 2016, there will be a significant increase in the salary employees must be paid in order to qualify as “Exempt.” One thing that will not change is that employers not in compliance with the new requirements when they become effective will face significant risk and liability.
Join us to learn what effect these changes could have on your nonprofit organization – and discuss strategies to effectively implement them. Other Wage and Hour issues for nonprofit organizations will also be discussed.
