On Wednesday, October 26th, LCIA is hosting a breakfast workshop, “HR in the AM: Running Out of Time to Comply with New Overtime Rules”. The event, which is open to the public, will take place from 8:15 to 9:30 a.m. at the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. Small business attorney Terese Bennett will give a presentation outlining new overtime laws.
Significant changes to federal overtime rules take effect on December 1, 2016, raising the salary threshold for exempt workers to $913/week or $47,466 a year. Ms. Bennett will discuss the ins-and-outs of the new rules, including an overview of the Fair Labor Standards Act and options for compliance. She’ll also give attendees a step-by-step checklist to help you prepare for those changes.
Business owners, HR staff, and office managers are all encouraged to attend. If you have salaried employees, there may be steps you need to take. Bring your questions, and join us for a valuable discussion over breakfast.
