Get Ready: New Overtime Rules in Effect Jan. 1, 2020

After four years of proposed regulations and final rules — followed by a court injunction and an appeals court ruling that put everything on hold several years ago — a final federal overtime rule now appears to be on track to take effect Jan. 1, 2020.

Among other things, the new rule from the U.S. Department of Labor will increase the compensation standards for the Fair Labor Standards Act’s “executive, administrative and professional” exemptions. The so-called EAP exemptions determine which employees are exempt from overtime-pay requirements under federal law when they work more than 40 hours in a week.

In this webinar, Paul DeCamp, the national co-chair of Epstein Becker Green’s wage and hour practice — and a former Wage and Hour Administrator at the Department of Labor — will explain the new requirements and what restaurants need to do to ensure compliance by the start of 2020.
