The Department of Labor announced proposed rule changes in July that could dramatically increase the number of employees subject to the overtime and minimum wage protections of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). If not managed properly, the announced changes could have a major budgetary impact on your institution and result in increased liability risks for improper employee classifications and overtime miscalculations.
Join Husch Blackwell attorneys for a three-hour training that will help you prepare for these changes and give you tools to manage the cost and potential liability associated with compliance.
