    Presentation Compliance/Pitfalls and Fair Labor Standards Act

    What the heck do I do now?

    1. It's  important to remember that the new overtime regulations were in response to the 8 million employees the DOL currently considers to be misclassified. If your employees are among them, you’re still at risk for FLSA wage and hour lawsuits.

    2. New regulations still haven’t been discarded entirely. T

    For employers who have yet to implement changes within their companies to comply with the FLSA

    1. The preliminary injunction decision will be appealed to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. If the decision is reversed by the Fifth Circuit, and the employer has not been in compliance on the December 1 effective date, a thorny question arises.

    In other words, failing to comply between December 1 and the new effective date could be a serious gamble.

    For employers who have spent the last several months making important changes, and have already communicated those changes to their employees, it may be too difficult to backtrack those changes without taking a huge blow to employee moral.

    1. Fortunately, if you fall into this category, rather than admonishing yourself for jumping the gun, you should give yourself a big pat on the back for taking the necessary steps towards compliance. 

    2. Long story short, no matter what the overtime threshold, and no matter what the final ruling, FLSA violations like employee misclassification and mishandling overtime shouldn’t be taken lightly.  protect yourself and your business in 2017
