Starting December 1, 2016, employers (including nonprofits) will have to raise the salary of most exempt employees above $47,476—or convert them to overtime-eligible status. Their titles and positions with the organization don’t matter: they will be eligible for overtime pay. That’s why the FLSA overtime rule represents such a major challenge for already-strained budgets. Just think of the potential overtime exposure for staffing lobbying activities, conferences and events the way you’ve done in the past. Imagine the implications for salary costs, job descriptions, workplace policies and payroll practices. No wonder so many organizations have expressed concerns about fallout from the rule. Despite the concerns and confusion, you’ve still got to meet the December deadline; you must still figure out how to make the finances work. Let a top HR attorney show you how to do both—in time to make the difference.
