Webinar Who’s Covered by Overtime Laws?

Date: May 19, 2016
Time: 11:00 AM to 11:45 AM


Fee: Free

On May 18, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor issued significant changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Overtime Regulations. The changes have raised the questions from many nonprofits, “Is my organization even covered by FLSA?” and “Who’s really covered by overtime laws?”

This training will help you and your organization answer the following questions:

  1. Do the FLSA overtime regulations even apply to my organization?
  2. Even if my organization is not subject to the FLSA overtime regulations, are certain staff positions subject to those regulations?

While the new Overtime Regulations come into effect on December 1 2016, now is the time for your nonprofit organization to start planning for potential impacts on your finances and staff. This webinar will help you to determine questions to consider as you try to determine if FLSA (and the changes to overtime law) apply to your organization or to any individual employees.

The webinar will include about 30 minutes of information sharing followed by significant time for Q&A. During the Q&A, broad questions – applicable to many nonprofits – will be answered; we will not be able to provide legal advice for your particular nonprofit.

Join the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and Nilan Johnson Lewis PA to make sure you’re preparing your board and senior leaders for these changes.

A video of the webinar is available to watch on MCN's Overtime Compensation Rules resource page.
