Woodlands Employment Law Update

Woodlands Employment Law Update

For over 20 years, the Woodlands Bar Association and the Woodlands Chamber have held an Employment Law Update. It’s over 6 hours of SHRM, HRCI and CLE credit – all for under $200.

Personal Injury Lawyers Want You: Overtime Pay

DOL: Out with the Old, in with the New (Overtime Regs)

DOL: Out with the Old, in with the New (Overtime Regs)

It’s official. The DOL has called “abandon ship” on its new overtime rule – the one that more than doubled the salary basis threshold before an employee could meet a white collar overtime exemption. Instead, the DOL plans to look at raising the threshold to a more reasonable level in a second new rule.

Coming Soon: The New, New DOL Overtime Rule?

Remember the new DOL overtime pay rule that got stalled out in court near last Thanksgiving? You know, days before the rule was set to go effective? It’s the one that would have doubled the salary basis threshold for an employee to be exempt from overtime pay. Well, Labor Secretary Acosta recently announced at a House Committee hearing that the DOL will publish an RFI for public comments on what the new salary threshold should be.
