A meeting for owners, principals and HR people only
Mark your calendars now for October 19. More details to come.
Join us at the Yarmouth House Restaurant for Attorney Mike Foley's presentation on new employment laws.

Employment law presentation on the new Department of Labor regulations that govern us all
Mike Foley from Foley & Foley, PC will explain all the hype surrounding the long-awaited and much-debated “White Collar” regulations that take affect 12/1/16.
This is complicated stuff because the risk is not limited to the Fair Labor Standards Act. Massachusetts has its own unique wage and hour regulations. Massachusetts recognizes some but not all of the exemptions and tests recognized by the FLSA. The stakes are high. 
 
The DOL has already set up field offices in every state and is conducting random audits. The fines associated with these audits would hurt. In addition to unpaid overtime, misclassification of employees can result in liquidated damages, equitable relief and reimbursement of attorneys’ fees. 
 
Mike will explain what this all means and provide his recommendations on how each of us can achieve compliance.
