Exempt or Non-Exempt: The New USDOL Regulations - A Conversation with M. Patricia Smith, Solicitor of Labor

The US Department of Labor has issued its long awaited overtime rules, making an estimated 5 million Americans eligible for overtime pay.  Business groups, who have offered significant input and requests for changes since the proposed rules were announced, say they are too rigid and will limit opportunities for employees, as well as cause employers to reduce people’s hours in order to pay for the additional expense.  Workers’ advocates believe the regulations are overdue and will help exploited employees gain parity in the workplace.

Join us for a discussion of the new regulations and how implementation will affect your clients:
