Nonprofit Law Matters

Coming Changes to Federal Overtime Rules Will Affect Nonprofit Employers

The US Department of Labor has issued new regulations, effective for most employers in December 2016, that will affect how employers, including nonprofits, determine which employees are exempt from certain wage and hour rules.

Since we’re not employment lawyers, these new rules fall outside of our areas of expertise, but our friends at California Association of Nonprofits recently released a very helpful summary that they prepared with the help of knowledgeable counsel.

Take a look, and consider consulting your own employment counsel to see what you need to do to prepare for the new rules. The CAN post also includes links for information about some upcoming webinars that might be helpful.
