A Note from the Editors

As we settle into the summer, many organizations continue to plan to comply with the bevy of new employment regulations coming down the pike. One regulation on which they remain focused is the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. We hosted a webinar on June 21 where we helped participants make sense of the DOL’s new overtime rule, provided insights on its impact, presented strategies for making and implementing classification decisions, and discussed best practices for communicating those decisions to the workforce. Click here for the webinar slides. You can also play a recording of the webinar (audio and video) by clicking here.
