FLSA “Pole Vault” Required – DOL Installs High Hurdle for Overtime Exempt Status 
Breakfast Meeting
Thursday, June 16 at 7:30 AM
SHRM PDC's Approved and HRCI Pending

The Department of Labor (“DOL”) has issued its long-feared changes to the regulations governing the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). The new regulations “raise the bar” significantly for employers seeking to exempt employees from overtime rules. The combination of the U.S. Department of Labor’s (“DOL”) increasingly activist approach to wage-and-hour enforcement and the incredible, sustained explosion of litigation under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) demonstrate the necessity for employers of all shapes and sizes to sensitize themselves to the new era of wage-and-hour rules. With responsibility for administration and enforcement of the FLSA, and in light of President Obama’s not-so-subtle urging, the DOL has stepped into uncharted waters with its brand new revisions to the FLSA’s “white collar exemption” regulations. These new regulations increase the minimum salary threshold for exempt status to more than double the current level and implement a three-year escalator principle (which will require re-evaluation beginning in January of 2020), but fortunately do not make any changes to the required duties tests. With more employees being placed in non-exempt positions, the rules will also place increased emphasis on tracking “hours worked.” This program will review: The details and scope of these new regulations; The “method behind the DOL’s madness”; and The implications and compliance issues for employers throughout the country. If nothing else, these new regulations (and the DOL’s enforcement efforts) should be a call to action for all employers to redouble their efforts to evaluate their wage-and-hour practices and minimize the risk of non-compliance. We will provide practical insights for evaluating compliance and the risks created by these new regulations.

Julie Kinkopf, a former General Counsel and firm attorney who has experience representing companies in employment and general litigation matters, defends public and private employers in all areas of employment law and advises managers and business owners.

Julie comes to Weber Gallagher from her own firm, Kinkopf Law LLC in Bala Cynwyd, PA, where she represented clients in employment law including hiring, discipline, termination, leave management, wage and hour disputes, discrimination and retaliation issues, reductions in force and enforcement of non-competition agreements.  She also drafted and reviewed employee handbooks, personnel forms, employment contracts and severance agreements.  She has represented clients in government audits and investigations.  Her litigation experience includes a 50-day jury trial concerning an employment matter. 

Before starting her own firm in 2013 and spending three years at another Bala Cynwyd employment firm, Julie was General Counsel to a large medical company with 21 locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Illinois.  Her position included overseeing the Human Resources Department, litigation work, negotiating contracts and drafting business agreements.

Jason E. Reisman, partner at Blank Rome, concentrates his practice on all aspects of labor relations and employment law, with a particular focus on wage and hour matters, including providing training and guidance on overtime and exemption issues, handling Department of Labor audits, and defending collective and class action litigation under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and similar state statutes.
Mr. Reisman has extensive experience in equal employment opportunity matters before state and federal agencies, including federal employment discrimination litigation under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and similar state laws. He also possesses in-depth experience with union collective bargaining negotiations and in handling representation case and unfair labor practice case proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board. Additionally, he regularly assists his clients in the preparation and litigation of executive employment/severance agreements, including non-competition and other restrictive covenants. 
Mr. Reisman writes extensively on employment law-related topics and is often invited to speak at major industry conferences as well as at small informal meetings. Additionally, Mr. Reisman provides training on topics including wage and hour compliance and pitfalls (including overtime pay problems and exemptions), harassment recognition and prevention, conducting effective investigations, managing without interference, and supervisory best practices.
For nine years (2004-2007; 2010-2014), he has been named to Pennsylvania's Super Lawyers list, and is also listed in Philadelphia magazine and Thomson Reuters, Legalmagazine.
