How Do the New Overtime Rules Affect Your Business?


UW-Marathon County Auditorium, Room 133

Presenters: Sara J. Ackermann


This week, the Department of Labor (DOL) announced its long-awaited rule expanding overtime protection for employees. This means a number of employees will be eligible for overtime pay instead of being considered exempt from federal wage and hour laws. The rule will go into effect December 1, 2016. We’ve fielded a number of calls from Human Resources professionals, business owners, and managers wondering how this new rule affects them. Ruder Ware attorneys Sara Ackermann, Dean Dietrich, and Kevin Terry will be presenting on this topic on May 31, 2016.

The recent changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act will impact millions of employees. This program will provide background information regarding the recent changes to the overtime pay exemptions and background regarding calculation of overtime pay rates and keeping track of hours worked.
