This Month’s Speaker is
Jeremy Hertz, JD, SPHR, VP of Compliance Alltrust

$3.6 Billion paid in wage and hour settlements since 2007

That startling figure equates to approximately $450 million annually paid out by employers due to civil settlements involving overtime, failure to provide meals and/or rest breaks and off the clock work. On June 30, 2015 the Department of Labor announced a proposed rule that would revise the regulations concerning the white collar exemption test for executive, administrative, and professional employees and significantly increase the financial and administrative burdens already faced by employers still reeling from implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Specifically, the DOL estimates that if the rule is adopted it will eliminate the exempt status for approximately 21.4 million employees in the United States; employees who would now be required to be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours in a week.
Insurance professionals working with corporate clients should familiarize themselves with the potential financial impact of these regulatory changes to their client’s bottom line in 2016, especially during the first year that all Applicable Large Employers can receive fines for failure to properly comply with the ACA. Join Mr. Hertz as he summarizes the proposed changes, its potential impact on the insurance industry and a firsthand discussion of experiencing a DOL audit.
