OVERTIME PAY: The Serious Impact of the New Rules for Overtime

December 1, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor will implement the new overtime rule.  This new rule will entitle most employees, who earn less than $47,476 per year, to overtime pay. Is your nonprofit ready? 

United Way’s Center for Nonprofits invites you to attend a free workshop for nonprofit organizations on Friday, October 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in its offices at 630 Market Street in Downtown Chattanooga. Feel free to bring your own lunch and beverages will be provided. 

Please join facilitator Attorney Rosemarie Hill – a shareholder and Chair of the Labor and Employment Section with Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C. – to receive expert guidance on the new rule’s impact and what you can do to ensure compliance as a nonprofit leader. 

This workshop will explore the questions:  Which employees are exempt or non-exempt from overtime under the FLSA? What are the penalties for misclassifications? What does it mean to be exempt or non-exempt from overtime? What's all this about the "new overtime rules? Are they already in effect, will they really cost employers millions upon millions of dollars, and what do we do to make sure we are in compliance with them?

This special event is provided free of charge to our community's nonprofits, thanks to the generosity of the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, in partnership with United Way of Greater Chattanooga, the Center for Nonprofits and the law firm of Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel. 

Visit www.UnitedWayCha.org/overtime to register online, or call Cathy Mendez at 423-752-0329. Registration closes on Thursday, October 6, or earlier if seating fills up.
