2019-2020 On-Demand: Final Overtime Rules
Online
CLE - Webinar
In 2016, a federal district court in Texas enjoined a proposed rule that would have substantially increased the minimum salary level for employees classified as exempt under the executive, administrative, and professional exemptions. After a change in presidential administration and another round of notice and comment, the minimum salary level is finally going up starting January 1, 2020 (by a lesser amount than proposed in 2016). The DOL estimates that 1.3 million more workers will be entitled to overtime once the rule takes effect. Listen in to hear about the background leading up to the rule, thoughts about whether the rule will be challenged again, and some of the issues with the Rule’s framework.
