SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, May 24, 2016—The U.S. Department of Labor came out with new overtime rules last week, including a doubling of the threshold. While the National Federation of Independent Business continues its fight against them, the nation’s voice of small business is also preparing its members for their compliance start date on December 1 of this year.
The media and Utah small-business owners, whether or not they are NFIB members, are invited to listen to a special, free webinar on how to comply with the new overtime rules tomorrow, Wednesday, May 25 at 10 a.m., MDT. Click here
The webinar will be presented by Tammy McCutchen, a principal at Littler Mendelson. In addition to serving as vice president and managing director of Strategic Solutions for Compliance HR, she is a leading authority on federal and state wage-hour laws and prevailing wage laws.

For more than 70 years, the National Federation of Independent Business has been the Voice of Small Business, taking the message from Main Street to the halls of Congress and all 50 state legislatures. NFIB annually surveys its members on state and federal issues vital to their survival as America’s economic engine and biggest creator of jobs. NFIB’s educational mission is to remind policymakers that small businesses are not smaller versions of bigger businesses; they have very different challenges and priorities.
