The Department of Labor's recent crackdown on illegal employment practices, coupled with the rise in cases over the past decade has meant that employers are facing more oversight than ever before. Moreover, classification cases are the most common - violations almost certainly lead to wage and hour investigations, lawsuits and major expenses for employers. 2016 is a year that is likely to bring great changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act, and how employee wages are governed. Employers and managers need to know how this will affect their business and their employees. Current pay practices need to be looked at afresh - are you in compliance currently? Are your employees properly classified? Will they still be classified properly tomorrow, when the law changes?
For these questions to be addressed, employers need to be aware of what the exemption criteria are, and how they are properly applied. The two tests - salary basis and duties test - are likely to be substantially changed; not knowing or preparing for the impact of these changes will lead to a greater financial burden in the future.
It's never been more important to evaluate your most important business asset: your people. Now's the time, with expert speaker Somer Jefferiss, to prepare for changes that will be unavoidable, to prepare for the inevitable and ensure your business can continue to thrive!
