NEHRA's Webinar Series
Are You Prepared to Comply with New Proposed FLSA Overtime Regulations?
Presented by Morgan, Brown & Joy, LLP
In 2015, the United States Department of Labor announced a proposed change to overtime regulations that will limit the number of white collar workers who will qualify for exemption from the overtime requirement. In May 2016, the DOL finally announced the changes, which will be effective in the coming months. Businesses should consider how the regulations will impact their pay practices. We will discuss basic concepts of overtime and exemptions, with a focus on the changes and strategies complying with the new salary rules.
Jeffrey S. Siegel, a partner at Morgan, Brown & Joy, LLP, represents employers in all aspects of labor and employment matters. His practice includes representing clients in labor and employment litigation, including claims of discrimination (e.g., Title VII, ADA, ADEA, Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 151B), improper payment of wages (e.g., FLSA, Massachusetts Wage Act), as well as state common law, breach of contract, wrongful termination, and defamation claims. Jeff regularly appears in federal and state courts, and before government agencies including the EEOC, MCAD, Department of Labor, Attorney General's Office, as well as state anti-discrimination agencies across the country. Jeff drafts and enforces employment agreements, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, and nondisclosure agreements. Jeff counsels clients on day-to-day human resources matters, including workplace investigations, employment policies and handbooks, drug testing, commission plans, compensation, and employee leave issues. Jeff also handles labor-related matters, including arbitration proceedings and charges filed before the NLRB.
