FLSA Regulations Seminar

Jun 28, 11:30am

New Braunfels Chamber

The new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) rules may affect the way you pay your employees. The Department of Labor recently updated overtime regulations which will extend to more than 4 million workers. If you have salary exempt employees on your payroll, those employees who do not currently receive overtime pay because of their status as a salaried employee, these new rules may affect your business. Your business must be compliant with the new rules by December 1, 2016. How do you prepare? This NB Business University seminar, FLSA Overtime Regulations, will help you prepare your business for the changes. Natalie Rougeux, CEO of New Braunfels employment law firm Rougeux & Associates PLLC, will provide a detailed analysis of the new regulations and how they will affect your business. The seminar will help identify the types of employees affected, outline different employment scenarios that you should be aware of, and help prepare you with information to make the best decisions for your business. Presenter: Natalie Rougeux, Rougeux & Associates Sponsored by Hill Country Payroll.
