Course Description:

Starting December 1, 2016, every employer in the country needs to do more than comply with the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule: You need a strategy for surviving the difficult new decisions employers will face—including the rule’s impact on budgetary pressures and wage compression.

Contractors face even greater challenges, including complying with FAR Council’s “Blacklisting” reporting requirements if any service employees are misclassified. Unfortunately, avoiding mistakes could be difficult since changes affecting the salary threshold affect compliance with both the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Service Contract Act.

Between now and December 1st, you need to build the right strategies for both compliance and survival. Let three experts show you how.
