Bankers' Overtime Exemption ToolkitTM

The Fair Labor Standards Act requires the payment of one and a half times the regular rate for all hours worked in excess of forty during the work week. The misclassification of employees as exempt continues to be a major area of exposure for banks.

The United States Department of Labor just issued proposed regulations which dramatically restrict the white collar exemptions. The new rules are expected to go into effect later in the year. The new rules require banks to review their classification of exempt and non-exempt employees, and to bring the exempt/non-exempt treatment of positions into line with the regulations, while minimizing exposure to claims based on misclassification. The Bankers Overtime Exemption ToolkitTM provides step-by-step guidance specifically designed for the banking industry.

The Guide has been designed by experts on Wage and Hour law, and a team of employment compliance professionals with many years’ experience assisting banks. Look at these components addressing the new rules.
