In this lesson, ExecSense examine the latest overtime laws and how you can prepare for them. Take the 60 minutes to view this session to learn about the federal rules issues by the Department of Labor that affect overtime pay for both exempt and non-exempt employees.

This 9-chapter lesson is led by expert, Doug Pepin, SHRM-CP (Human Resources Business Consultant at Advise-HR LLC) and focuses on determining pay rates, staying on budget, explaining new rules to employees, and updating your documentation.

In this 60-minute session, you will learn:

  • What your company needs to do before December 1st to comply with the new Department of Labor and FLSA standards and regulations, how to reclassify qualified positions, and what the aftermath of the changes could be

  • An in-depth breakdown of the federal, salaried exempt employee classifications: executive, professional, administrative, outside sales, and computer-related classes
  • What to do if your current exempt employees are not making the minimum: review, write, or update the position, evaluate if it’s worth $47,476, and ask if it passes the standard duties test
  • How to set your rate of pay and hours worked while maintaining your budget; how to deal with employees transitioning from salaried exempt to salaried nonexempt or hourly roles; and what other challenges the new standards present
