Az Business Taps Jill Chasson to Break Down New Overtime Rule, Share Tips for Implementation
Employment attorney Jill Chasson explained the new overtime rule and shared how business owners and executives can prepare before it goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2020 in an article for Az Business.
Jill discussed how the new rule updates the salary threshold for employees who are classified as exempt from the minimum wage and the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime requirements. She suggested that employers review compensation for all exempt employees to determine who is being paid less than the new minimum salary, consider increasing certain employees’ pay to above the salary threshold, and consider transitioning non-exempt employees to hourly pay to better track overtime.
Jill provides practical advice to employers regarding compliance with the many federal and state laws that govern the workplace and regularly provides training for supervisors and human resource professionals. When disputes arise, Jill represents employers before administrative agencies, in arbitration proceedings, and in litigation in federal and state courts regarding a variety of employment-related claims.
