    Program Description:

      More than a decade since it was last updated, the Fair Labor Standards Act is expected to undergo a significant revision in 2015. In particular, the new regs will focus on employee classification -- exempt vs. nonexempt. When those changes come through, employers may have very little time to review their classification practices and apply the new standard. In this program, Tammy McCutchen, an attorney with Littler Mendelson who was administrator of the Wage and Hour Division during the last major overhaul of the regulations, will review the changes that may lie ahead and what employers must be prepared to do when new regs are issued. She'll also provide an overview of enforcement trends and how to ensure your wage and hour practices are up to date and defensible.
