The Overtime Rule Regulations:  How to prepare in uncertain times


Melissa Scholz, Scholz Nonprofit Law

Sarah Kissel, Scholz Nonprofit Law

The Department of Labor's updated overtime regulation, which would have increased the salary threshold for overtime exemptions to $47,476, was invalidated in September 2017 before ever taking effect. The Department, now under a Trump administration, must draft a new version of the overtime regulations. While it is not certain what the new salary level will be, this session will help you understand how to stay in compliance now and when the new regulations become effective. You'll have the chance to learn about:

  • The basics of the current overtime rule and the "white collar" exemptions to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • The extent of the FLSA’s coverage for nonprofits and their employees
  • What the experts predict will change in the new overtime regulations
  • Steps to take now that will ease the transition to the new overtime regulations
  • Strategies for compensating employees that will keep your organization in compliance

We will use this time to develop an understanding of the intent behind the exemptions to overtime pay as well as how to determine which employees fit the measures of exempt—now and when the salary level is increased. Additionally, we will review the legitimate use of compensation time, or “comp time” in light of recent proposed legislation to increase and alter its current status. We hope you will bring your related questions and leave with a solid sense of how to stay compliant with compensation regulations, now and in the years to come.
