As you know, the final version of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) updated overtime rules have been issued. In a nutshell, these overtime rules will raise the salary threshold for “white collar” workers from $455 per week to $913 per week starting December 1, 2016.
Our clients and the groups we have presented to have expressed a great deal of anxiety about these new overtime rules. Many are totally overwhelmed. Who will be impacted? How do we handle this? What does compliance even look like?
In response to these concerns, we created a Position Classification Service to help our clients and the groups in which we are involved. We recognize the incredible vulnerability employers are feeling, and we want to help. We believe this service provides two vital benefits:
- Clear, step by step checklists that allow your business to create legally compliant employment classifications and job descriptions. The resource documents we provide and the classification process will train your employees so that they are better able to create accurate job descriptions and employee classifications going forward.
- Legal counsel at a flat fee. We will review your job descriptions and job classifications, edit them, and provide you with clear guidance regarding compliance with these new laws. Because this review is conducted by outside counsel, it is protected by attorney client privilege. In other words, if we discover a mistake, that knowledge is protected.
Please let us know how we can help.
