Course Description

In 2016, The Obama administration drastically altered the rules on who is entitled to overtime pay, and who isn’t. In 2018, The Trump administration softened the new regulations somewhat. This webinar is designed to educate attendees on the Trump Dept. of Labor’s new rules on salary requirements. More importantly, it will go over the rules that really matter: the duties requirements that truly exempt certain workers from overtime pay.

According to the US Dept of Labor, the new Exempt/Non-Exempt worker rules will result in the following: Workers directly affected. 4.2 million salaried workers will be affected by this rule based on their salaries. These workers are currently ineligible for overtime. The Department estimates that most of them (4.1 million) will become eligible for overtime when they work more than 40 hours (i.e., they will be converted to overtime-eligible status), while others (100,000) will receive a raise so that their salary is above the new threshold. Workers indirectly affected. 8.9 million salaried workers (3.2 million blue-collar and 5.7 million white although their salaries are above the current salary threshold, their duties do not meet the exemption for executive, administrative, or professional workers.

Under the final rule, their eligibility for overtime will become clearer because their salaries will fall below the new threshold—and no assessment of their duties will be necessary. Of the 5.7 million white-collar workers, approximately 732,000 are overtime-eligible, but their employers don’t recognize them as such and so do not pay them the overtime they deserve when they work more than 40 hours.
