Department of Labor Overtime Rule Webinar
June 9, 2016
On May 18, 2016 the Department of Labor (DOL) finalized a rule (29 CFR Part 541) that will raise the salary threshold at which eligible workers qualify for overtime pay from $23,660 to $47,476 per year. The final rule goes into effect December 1, 2016 with the threshold automatically increasing every three years, based on wage growth over time. NAFOA will host a webinar on Tuesday, June 14 at 2:00 p.m. EST regarding the issue.
This webinar will determine the applicability of the Fair Labor Standards Act to tribal governments and discuss how tribal governments can prepare. We will also review the importance of planning organizational policies around timekeeping, analyzing potential increases in salary expense, identifying positions effected, and what tribes need to do to establish internal labor codes.
