Can your business afford huge increases to its overtime costs? Beginning 12/1/16, the U.S. Department of Labor is changing the rules. Workers with yearly incomes at or below $47,476 will qualify for additional overtime compensation — more than doubling the previous level of $23,660!

This one-hour webinar will help you:

  • Understand the various categories (executive, administrative and executive-exempt)
  • Know the ins and outs of salary definitions, the new DOL rules and limited deductions
  • Discover how the “Safe Harbor” provision could help you
  • Find available options for manufacturing companies
  • Identify the steps you must take prior to 12/1/16

The last thing you need is added costs and the penalties for non-compliance are steep. Know what to do and when — all with help from your Association.
