2016 Inland Webinars
1) Working overtime: How new FLSA regulations will affect your workplace very soon. Tuesday, September 27 | 10:30 a.m. CDT
Date: 09/27/2016 and Time: 10:30 AM
New white collar overtime wage FLSA exemption regulations are going into effect very soon—December 1, 2016. Learn the impact on your media organization of the new exempt status compensation level of $913 a week. This webinar by two of the nation’s most respected management-side labor lawyers will warn employers and HR professionals to be alert to the increased enforcement actions by the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division—including seeking liquidating damages in audits. Especially important for newspapers will be a discussion of Wage and Hour’s enforcement position on district managers’ exempt status.

2) Getting to "Union No": A union avoidance training webinar Friday, October 7, 2016 | 10:30 a.m. CDT
Date: 10/07/2016 and Time: 10:30 AM

This webinar will offer basic practical training to deal with the increasing risk of unionization, and will cover these topics:
Given the greatly reduced time employers now have to respond to an organizing drive—often as little as three weeks—the training offered in this webinar is particularly timely and valuable.
