Understanding Revised “White Collar Employee” Regulations
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Revised White Collar Regulations – Considerations and Strategies for Compliance by New Jersey’s Grantmakers and Grantees
Earlier this year, the United States Department of Labor (DOL) published revised regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) governing the minimum salary that must be paid to executive, administrative, and professional employees—that is, “white collar” employees—in order for those employees to be exempt from an entitlement to overtime (OT) pay for hours worked in excess of 40 per week. The revised regulations go into effect on December 1, 2016. For nonprofit organizations — grantees — the new regulations will have a profound impact.
During this webinar, Christine Michelle Duffy, Senior Staff Attorney at Pro Bono Partnership, will overview the major changes made by the DOL and how those changes will impact your organization, your grantees, and the New Jersey nonprofit community generally. As Christine will explain, the compliance exemptions that the DOL has touted as minimizing the impact of the regulatory changes on nonprofits do not apply to employees located in the Garden State. As a result, it is expected that many grantees will face daunting challenges in trying to deliver quality services on a timely basis within the confines of grants and government contracts that were based in part on a certain number of employees being exempt from OT pay.
This webinar will:
- Help you navigate decisions relating to whether to reclassify your organization’s exempt employees as nonexempt
- Alert funding organizations as employers to hidden landmines, and
- Provide tips for complying with the revised regulations
