New overtime rules: Our white paper explains the details

Salaried workers traditionally have not qualified for overtime. But as pay has lagged for employees classified exempt or salaried and hours only increase, new federal rules will provide welcome relief.

While the rules do not go into effect until December, you need to learn if and how they might affect you. In order to provide more details, we recently put together a white paper.

Employment issues also go beyond pay. Asking questions can ruffle feathers and lead to subsequent retaliation. In addition, if your position is reclassified from exempt to non-exempt, you may be entitled to meal and rest breaks. When employers retaliate or fail to offer appropriate breaks, legal remedies do exist.

If you have earn a salary of less than $47,476 and work more than 40 hours most weeks, read “Overtime: Are You Eligible Under Expanded Federal Regulations?” now. You will learn:
