Final Wage & Hour Regulations

On Sept. 24, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced a new final rule that updates the salary thresholds that some individuals must meet in order to qualify for a minimum wage and overtime exemption under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The final rule becomes effective on Jan. 1, 2020. Due to this recent update, we have decided to change our webinar topic from employee handbooks to the final wage and hour regulations. We apologize for anyone that had signed up for our employee handbooks webinar. We will be offering this topic in the near future.
