Overtime Pay: New Regulations and What Nonprofit Organizations Need to Know

Thursday, July 14, 2016, from 3-5 p.m. in Room # 92 of the JC Penney Conference Center on the UMSL north campus
Nonprofit organizations are not exempt from the laws that cover fair wages and compensation for employees.   As such, nonprofit organizations need to know about the new overtime regulations that were recently announced by the U.S. Labor Department, which go into effect on December 1, 2016.  The new regulations mean that more employees will be entitled to overtime compensation, regardless of whether they are currently classified as executive, administrative, or professional (white-collar) workers.

Come to this class to learn about (1) these new overtime regulations, (2) the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), (3) how to identify “exempt” vs. “nonexempt” employees, and (4) how all of this is handled by the U.S. Department of Labor. 

Instructor John “J.P.” Hasman is a partner at Armstrong Teasdale, which is one of the nation's largest 200 law firms.  He is also a former National Labor Relations Board attorney.   In his practice, J.P. negotiates union contracts, handles unfair labor practice charges, resolves grievances, represents clients at grievance arbitrations, and manages secondary picketing issues and other strike-related litigation and matters. In addition, J.P. assists nonunion employers with union avoidance efforts, and advises and counsels employers during union campaigns.

As co-chair of the firm’s Higher Education industry group, J.P. helps lead the firm’s multi-disciplinary representations of some of the country’s largest and most esteemed colleges and universities. J.P. has counseled multiple higher education clients regarding adjunct faculty organizing efforts and all of their traditional labor needs.

Furthermore, J.P. counsels employers on all aspects of the employment relationship and defends them in state and federal courts against discrimination claims and other workplace-related allegations. In addition to his litigation successes, J.P. keeps clients out of the courts while helping them accomplish business goals, manage workforces, and grow their business.
