Our speakers will discuss the existing white-collar exemption tests and provide a few thoughts on the possible impacts of final regulations expected later this year.

  • Calculating Regular Rates of Pay and Overtime Pay: Learn how to calculate the regular rate of pay for overtime purposes in varying circumstances, including where non-exempt employees are paid a salary, work at two or more different rates, or receive premium pay, night differentials, hazard pay, bonuses, commissions, gifts, awards, or other payments.
