Webinar: DOL's New Overtime Proposal - What's in It, What's Next

March 25, 2019 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

Learn how the Labor Department's proposal to revise federal overtime rules could affect your restaurant company.

March 25, 2019 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM ET


Brought to you by:



National Restaurant Association and Restaurant Law Center in-house attorneys and labor law experts Angelo Amador and Shannon Meade host top wage-and-hour experts from Littler Mendelson's Workplace Policy Institute for a restaurant-industry briefing on the Department of Labor's new overtime proposal. DOL released the proposal March 6 and is taking comments on it through early May. Among other provisions, the DOL proposal would revise the Fair Labor Standards Act's salary threshold -- the test that determines which employees are exempt from earning overtime pay under federal law. 

Littler Mendelson's Workplace Policy Institute is a Restaurant Law Center partner. Littler's Maury Baskin was the lead attorney in a successful legal challenge to the Obama Administration's final overtime rule in 2016, and Tammy McCutchen is Littler's Compliance HR director and a former DOL wage and hour administrator.  

What you'll learn:

  • Understand DOL's revisions to the federal overtime rule, including the proposed new salary test.
  • Learn what changes the restaurant industry pushed for in the proposed rule -- and whether they got included.
  • Get answers to your compliance-related questions.
  • Learn the impact of the proposed rule on pending legal cases.
  • Understand next steps -- and how you can weigh in.
