Council plans June 28 forum for nonprofits on OT Final Rule
The Providers' Council will host a DOL Overtime Regulations Forum on Tuesday, June 28th at 10 a.m. in Framingham to help our members and other nonprofit professionals better understand the requirements of the Final Rule and how it applies to the nonprofit sector.
The Overtime Final Rule was published on May 18th by the Department of Labor and is scheduled to go into effect on Dec. 1. It raises the overtime salary exemption from $23,660 to $47,476. By some estimates, more than 4 million additional employees across the U.S. will be eligible to earn overtime.
The regulations raise a number of questions for community-based providers that are working on fixed state contracts under rates that were set before the OT rule was issued. Panelists for the June 28th forum include Patricia Colarossi, Community Outreach and Resource Planning Specialist, U.S. Department of Labor; Bill Lyttle, President, The Key Program; and Peter Moser, attorney, Hirsch Roberts Weinstein LLP. The discussion will be moderated by Council President and CEO Michael Weekes.
A Q&A session will follow the discussion. Some of the issues to be addressed include:
- What the new regulations mean for nonprofit employers;
- What are the compliance questions that need to be addressed; and
- What human service organizations need to know from a sector perspective.
The forum will take place on Tuesday, June 28th from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Plymouth Church, 87 Edgell Road, Framingham. The cost is $35 for members and $65 for non-members. Download the flyer here.
