Stevens to Present on Overtime Changes and FLSA White Collar Exemptions for MCLE

On May 17, 2016 the United States Department of Labor released its long-awaited final rule revising the salary test for the “white collar” exemptions to the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). The new rule, effective December 1, 2016, is expected to impact some 4.2 million salaried workers based simply on the revision of the salary threshold for exemption. The most significant change is the increase of that threshold for the executive, professional, and administrative exemptions from $455 per week to $913 per week.

On June 28, 2016, Charla Stevens will present for an MCLE New England seminar called, “‘1st Look’ at DOL’s Final Rule on Overtime Changes & FLSA ‘White Collar’ Exemptions.”  The seminar will run from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the MCLE Conference Center in Boston.
