Are you Ready? Pending Changes to Employee Classification and Overtime Rules

When: Thursday, March 17, 2016, Noon-1:30 p.m.

Location: United Arts office, 410 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 170, Raleigh

Join David Heinen, vice president for Public Policy and Advocacy with the NC Center for Nonprofits, as he reviews recent employment policy developments that could have major implications for almost every nonprofit with paid staff in this state.

1.Overtime Pay: Last summer, the U.S. Department of Labor proposed major changes to overtime pay requirements. These rules, which will be finalized later this year and will likely take effect in 2017, would require most North Carolina nonprofits to offer overtime pay to any employee with annual wages of $50,000 or less. Watch the U.S. Department of Labor's 4-minute video on the proposed changes.

2. Employee/Contractor Classification: Federal and state regulators have recently clarified rules for worker misclassification, which help your nonprofit determine whether your workers are employees or independent contractors. Both the federal and state government have become more vigilant in enforcing worker misclassification laws and penalizing nonprofits and other employers if they misclassify their workers.
