Recorded on July 14, 2016
On May 18, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor finalized its proposed rule to increase the salary threshold necessary to be classified as exempt from overtime. When the final rule goes into effect on December 1, 2016, the salary threshold will more than double.
In this session, Michael Zinser will educate you on the new rule, as well as how your company can manage its new requirements. Zinser serves as a resource for SNPA’s Legal Hotline and has recently addressed questions about potential exemptions under the new rule, which he will cover in further detail during this presentation. These include an exemption for small newspapers with circulation numbers under 4,000; a creative professional exemption for journalists and photographers; and a Section 13(d) exemption for district managers.
With over 40 years of experience in labor and employment law and over 250 newspaper clients stretching geographically from Hawaii to New York, Zinser is uniquely qualified to help your company address this complex new legal development.
