Harter Secrest & Emery LLP (HSE), a full-service business law firm with offices throughout New York, will present a complimentary webinar on Wednesday, June 15 at 10:00 am to educate Human Resources professionals on the recent changes issued by the United States Department of Labor (DOL) regarding white collar exemptions from overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act. 

The revised regulations, released by DOL on May 18, 2016, increase the salary threshold under which many salaried workers may qualify for overtime pay. Effective December 1, 2016, the new threshold will be $47,476 annually ($913 per week), up from the previous threshold of $23,660 annually ($455 per week). The threshold is scheduled to increase every three years, beginning January 1, 2020. While the new regulations may extend overtime pay to an increased number of workers nationwide, the final rule did not change the duties portion of the test necessary to determine if a salaried worker shall receive or be considered exempt from overtime pay.

The webinar will be presented by Amy L. Hemenway and Benjamin E. Mudrick, attorneys in the firm’s Labor & Employment practice group. Harter Secrest & Emery’s Labor and Employment attorneys counsel employers of all sizes in a wide range of industries on all aspects of compliance with federal and state labor and employment laws.
