Detroit –May 25, 2016– Detroit-based management side labor and employment law firm Nemeth Law, P.C., will present a webinar on new regulations that will extend overtime pay for an estimated 4.2 million employees across the country and increase wages by an estimated $12 billion over the next 10 years. The webinar, scheduled for June 13 from noon until 1:15 p.m., is offered as part of Nemeth Law’s Raising the Bar, an educational series raising employer awareness of current issues in employment and labor law.

• A review of the overtime requirements of the FLSA
• Exemptions under the FLSA and the regulatory tests for each
• The job duties test for the white-collar exemptions
• The new Department of Labor (DOL) test salary- what has changed and what hasn’t
• Permissible and impermissible deductions
• Top worker misclassification issues
• The impact of the new regulations on an employer’s workforce
