BLR’s Wage and Hour Master Class features an all-new agenda on how to tackle the latest compliance challenges stemming from miscalculations of pay, compensation planning practices, salary communication missteps, and more, such as:

The Department of Labor (DOL) Wage and Hour Division’s (WHD) final overtime exemption rule overhaul, which goes into effect soon

Updates on pay equity legislative trends and the practical impact of Congress’ proposed Paycheck Fairness Act and WAGE Equity Act

The increased risk of class and collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which could result in financial liability into the millions of dollars

The latest prohibitions on requests for applicants’ salary history

How to maneuver sensitive salary communication conversations that you should have when converting exempt workers to nonexempt status

How bonuses factor into the new salary threshold for overtime exemption

How to correctly calculate overtime pay in compliance with applicable FLSA overtime regulations

How to analyze required duties tests for each job to ensure that your employees meet the salary and duties tests required for overtime exemption

How to minimize the risk of EEOC, OFCCP, or private lawsuits alleging unfair pay practices by conducting a comprehensive pay equity audit that corrects disparate compensation practices while preserving the all-important “privilege”

How to determine groupings for compensation analysis by job title, job family, pay grade, and overtime exemption status

An examination of no-poaching agreements which prevent franchisees from employing current or recent former employees of the franchisor or other franchisees, without consent of the current or recent former employer

Federal Regulatory, Legislative, and Court Ruling Hot Spots: The Practical Impact of New Standards, Rules, and More

8:30 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.

The financial stakes are huge if your company isn’t fully compliant with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and applicable Department of Labor (DOL) regulations. It is even more crucial now that the DOL is close to finalizing its proposed rule that will increase the salary threshold for overtime exemptions to $35,308. Also, the Paycheck Fairness Act passed in the House of Representatives in March 2019. The ultimate fate of this pay equity legislation in the Senate remains to be seen, but the fact is that the legislation mimics laws already in place and being considered in cities and states across the country. And, there’s more cause for concern: Congress’ proposed WAGE Equity Act has been presented as an alternative to the Paycheck Fairness Act, so it’s likely some form of new pay equity legislation will become law at the national level. Also, there are newly proposed regulations on calculating the regular rate of pay and joint employer situations, as well as court rulings that are cause for concern for employers nationwide.

This opening session will provide a succinct summary of:

The timeline for implementation on the DOL’s final overtime exemption rule and what the rule will and will not do

What Congress’ Paycheck Fairness Act seeks to do, and the practical implications it would present for employers

How the WAGE Equity Act
