    Top 10 Wage and hour Violations

    Michele Small (NHDOL) and Steven McKinney (USDOL) will be presenting on Federal and State wage and hour compliance assistance, including updates and common pitfalls for HR professionals to avoid.

    Common pitfalls we see with employers under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and in particular, upcoming changes to the regular rate for overtime regulations 29 CFR 778 and to the white-collar salaried exemptions 29 CFR 541. On September 24, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor announced a final rule issued under the Fair Labor Standards Act to allow 1.3 million workers to become newly entitled to overtime. The final rule becomes effective on January 1, 2020!  Come learn about the changes to the exemption regulations and what you need to know to stay in compliance. Other topics will include recordkeeping, hours worked, and benefits where NH DOL is seeing the most mistakes from employers, as well as updates/changes to state law. They will also leave some time for Q&A.
