C4CM-Counsel’s Guide to FLSA Final Rule on White Collar Exemptions

Webinar (EDT)

Jeffrey Landes, Member of the Firm, and Jeffrey Ruzal, Senior Counsel, present "C4CM-Counsel's Guide to FLSA Final Rule on White Collar Exemptions."

The DOL published the final rule to the FLSA overtime regulations on May 18th, making 4.2 million more American workers eligible for overtime pay. The final rule takes effect Dec. 1, 2016.

Counsel must prepare employers now to analyze and adapt employment guidelines, policies and procedures to determine proper classification and exemption status.
