HR Group to hear about proposed overtime rule

Posted: Friday, May 27, 2016

The next HR/Professional Development Group meeting will be held on Friday, June 10 at Pathfinder Services, 2824 Theater Avenue. The group will hear from attorney, H. Joseph Cohen, from the office of Barrett & McNagny, Fort Wayne, as he gives an update to the Department of Labor’s (DOL) newly proposed rules for minimum wage and overtime pay for salaried employees.

The Department of Labor released its final rule regarding the salary level used to determine if employees are classified as exempt from overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The new rule increases the salary level from $23,660 to $47,476 and Highly Compensated Employees (HCE) from $100,000 to $134,004 per year for exempt status. Set to begin on December 1, 2016, employers need to understand the new rule and its implications for their organizations.

If you would like to attend this very important meeting, please email skimmel@huntington-chamber.com or call the Chamber office at (260) 356-5300. The seminar is free; lunch is $10. RSVP’s are required to attend.
