Complimentary lunch provided by Burr Forman McNair.

On March 7, 2019,the Department of Labor announced a proposed rule that would make more than a million more American workers eligible for overtime.

Under currently enforced law, employees with a salary below $455 per week ($23,660 annually) must be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours per week. Workers making at least this salary level may be eligible for overtime based on their job duties. This salary level was set in 2004.

This proposal would boost the proposed standard salary level to $679 per week (equivalent to $35,308 per year). Above this salary level, eligibility for overtime varies based on job duties

How will these changes impact you? 

HRCI Credits: This program has been pre-approved for 1.0 GENERAL re-certification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR re-certification through the Human Resource Certification Institute.
