URGENT: New employment overtime rule REQUIRES you to modify how you pay some of your full-time salaried employees or fall victim to expensive lawsuit nightmares.
Effective January 1st, the new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rule changes the threshold for salaried employees. In a nutshell, this means you could be among the thousands of practices REQUIRED to pay overtime to full-time employees making less than $35,568 a year. And, noncompliance really isn’t an option.
Private lawyers filing expensive lawsuits driven by employee complaints make complying with this new FLSA rule essential to your practice. Wage-and-hour legal cases are currently the most active types of employment law litigation, and settlement amounts are hitting new highs. This means when employees complain about not being paid correctly, lawyers listen, and you get sued.
So, what can you do about it…
