The New Overtime Rule: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace the Change

The Department of Labor's updated overtime regulation, which increases the salary threshold for overtime exemptions to $47,476, will take effect on December 1st of this year. This session will help you understand how your organization and employees will be affected by the new rule and what steps you can take to ensure your organization is in compliance. You'll have the chance to learn about:

  • The basics of the DOL's new overtime rule and the "white collar" exemptions to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

  •  Strategies for compensating employees under the new rule and potential liability for noncompliance

  • The extent of the FLSA’s coverage for nonprofits and their employees

We will also use this time for reflection and discussion regarding nonprofit organizations' compensation models. Too often, nonprofits may promote a culture of martyrdom, encouraging employees to work long hours for low wages in the name of their mission. But why must "suffering for the cause" be standard practice in the nonprofit sector? Complying with the new overtime rule may bring challenges, but it also presents an opportunity for nonprofits to lead the fight for social and economic justice by example, and to speak out to donors and the public about the true cost of their missions. Although we know this is a tall order in light of realistic funding constraints, we invite you to bring your insights and ideas to this conversation, and we hope you will leave this session better prepared to embrace the change.
