Davis & Gilbert Labor & Employment Breakfast Seminar:
How to Prepare for 2016: Proposed New Federal Overtime Regulations, New Employee-Friendly Laws in NYS and NYC, and Joint Employer Issues

March 2016

As we welcome 2016, employers nationwide are watching closely to see whether the Department of Labor will promulgate the proposed new overtime rules, which would greatly change the landscape of overtime pay requirements for employees. Are you ready for these changes? What are you doing to prepare? New York employers also need to pay special attention to new discrimination and wage laws protecting the rights of employees and applicants in New York State and New York City. Employers working with staffing agencies and professional employer organizations (PEOs) also need to carefully review their relationships, potential liabilities and risks.

In this seminar, we will explore:

  • Proposed Federal Overtime Regulations: What the proposed changes are, what they will mean for your employees’ classifications and wages, and what you should be doing now in anticipation of the changes
  • New York State Laws: Proposed lawsbroadening the rights of employees to discuss wage information, promoting gender-based pay equality, recognizing familial status as a protected class under the Human Rights Law, and proposing to add transgender status as a protected class
  • New York City Laws: How the laws are limiting the use of applicants’ and employees’ consumer credit history, and background checks; and amending the City Human Rights Law to add “caregiver” status as a protected class
  • Joint Employer Issues: Workers may be considered your employees under the law even though you do not directly employ them
  • Hot Topics in Employees Benefits: The latest on the ACA and related issues involving the contingent workforce, staffing agencies and professional employer organizations (PEOs)
  • Quick Takes: Updates on the compensability of “off the clock” work, and latest developments
