New Overtime Rule Changes Effective January 1, 2020
9:00 am – 10:30 am MT


On September 24, 2019, the Department of Labor issued final rules on overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act that become effective on January 1, 2020.  Virtually all financial institutions will be impacted, so you must prepare now!  The salary level test for the “executive, administrative, and professional” overtime exemption will increase from $455 to $684 per week. Therefore, as of January 1, 2020, employees must be paid at least $35,568 per year to satisfy the salary level test for the overtime exemption and must also satisfy the specific duties test.  Any employer that violates these new rules will be liable for back pay, interest, damages, and attorney fees.  Attend this webinar to understand the effect the new rules will have on your institution and learn the alternatives available for employees who will no longer be exempt from overtime pay.
