"With the Overtime Final Rule being blocked just days prior to its December 1st implementation date, many employers are scrambling to determine what the best move is now to make sure they are in compliance, as well as making a sound business decision," says Avitus Group's Montana-based Director of Human Resources & Risk Management Ryan Braley.
"Complex HR law is ever-changing and this is just one more example of how difficult government rules and regulations are to keep up with. At Avitus Group, we make sure our clients are trained so that they may be in compliance, and we're launching our Overtime Final Rule Q & A Forum online as a resource for all employers nationwide as we know there are a lot of questions right now," says Avitus Group Public Relations Manager Dianne Parker.
Avitus Group's Overtime Final Rule Q & A Forum answers the top five questions employers are asking following the November 22nd, 2016 District Court decision by Judge Mazzant to block final implementation of the rule. Mazzant agreed with numerous state challengers and has ultimately put the Overtime Final Rule on hold.
"The top five questions covered in Avitus Group's online forum are: What does this mean now for employers and their employees?; So can I leave my exempt people who make less than $47,476/year exempt? Could this be overturned and the new salary threshold still go through? Why has this been stopped now? What can I do as a business owner to make sure I am on top of the latest laws and in compliance with current and forthcoming HR laws?" says Avitus Group's California-based Director of Human Resources & Risk Management Cynthia Hancock.
"In addition to answering the top 5 questions that have already been pouring in from employers, we're giving employers the opportunity to ask specific questions via our online Q & A forum. Our HR team of experts is happy to assist," says Avitus Group's Denver-based Regional Human Resources Manager Dawn Wilson.
