The New Overtime Rules and Other Federal Labor Topics

Farm Credit East Webinar Recording Available

Northeast producers are invited to view the farm labor webinar recording from June 23, 2016. This webinar covered the new Department of Labor overtime rule, which makes changes to rules regarding salaried workers exemption from overtime and special considerations for ag employers.

Additionally, the webinar provided a status update on the H-2A program, how H-2A workers are dealt with under the Affordable Care Act and some proposed federal farm worker housing rules.

The webinar was presented by Chris Schulte from the Washington, DC law firm CJ Lake, LLC. Mr. Schulte advises and litigates on behalf of employers and employer associations on employment and business immigration matters, including wage and hour, H-2A and H-2B non-immigrant worker programs, and tax issues. He also works on public policy issues involving Congress and Federal agencies on issues related to immigration, agriculture, insurance, clean energy, health care, environment and transportation.

View the recording to learn more about the recently announced “overtime” rules.
