Chamber Hosting Program On Overtime Regulation Changes – Brevard NC


Last updated 9/28/2016 at 7:21pm

The Brevard/Transylvania Chamber of Commerce is hosting a special program on Wednesday, Oct. 5, about the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the NC Wage and Hour Act.

The 10 a.m. program will be held in the Transylvania County Commissioners Chambers in the County Administration building at 101 S. Broad St. in Brevard.

The program will feature Attorney Jonathan W. Yarbrough as guest speaker, who will address employer compliance with key components of the FLSA and the NC Wage and Hour Act, including the new Department of Labor overtime regulations, which will become effective on Dec. 1.

The Chamber is making this event open to the public and free of charge.

“A number of businesses and nonprofits expressed concern over the new Department of Labor overtime regulations, particularly not knowing exactly how to deal with the new requirements,” said Chamber Executive Director Clark Lovelace. “We wanted to provide an expert who could help local organizations understand this issue and determine what they can do to stay in compliance.”

Yarbrough is a partner in the law firm of Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP. The firm is dedicated to representing management exclusively in all aspects of the employment relationship.

Yarbrough is a frequent speaker on employment law topics and was a significant contributor to “North Carolina Employment Law,” a treatise on state employment law published by Lexis Law Publishing.

This program will specifically cover white collar exemptions, interns, joint employers, post-liminary duties and the Department of Labor’s approach to enforcing these new standards.

In the end, the objective is for participants to gain a working knowledge of the FLSA regulations and the NC Wage and Hour Act, to be able to spot issues related to exempt versus non-exempt employees and wage payment issues, and to better understand how recent changes to the regulations impact their organization.
