Guest:

Jennifer McClure, CEO of Unbridled Talent and DisruptHR

With Gallup’s State of the Global Workforce report showing 85% of employees are disengaged, the way we conduct work is no longer as effective or attractive to top talent. How can HR disrupt the status quo and challenge outdated processes to become leaders in their workplace?

In this episode of HR Break Room, recorded at the 2019 Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference & Exposition, Jennifer McClure joins hosts Caleb Masters and Tiffany Gamblin to discuss:

  • how HR can disrupt work with technology to become go-getters
  • the importance of exchanging ideas and challenging the status quo to improve processes
  • how an innovative culture and new thinking contribute to the bottom line
  • why now is the time for HR to lead change and growth as a strategic business partner

Louis R. Lessig, Brown & Connery, LLP partner

On March 7, the U.S. Department of Labor proposed a rule that boosts the salary threshold at which workers are eligible to receive overtime, making a major change to employee exemption criteria under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

If finalized, the rule will extend overtime protections to more than a million currently exempt workers making less than $35,308 per year. It also would represent financial and operational challenges for employers, who will have to evaluate how their employees are scheduled and paid, in order to mitigate labor costs and exposure under the FLSA.

In this episode of HR Break Room, recorded at the Society for Human Resource Management 2019 Conference & Exposition, Louis R. Lessig joins hosts Caleb Masters and AJ Griffin to:

  • review the latest developments in the proposed FLSA rule
  • discuss how organizations can begin preparing today for potential changes to ensure compliance
  • answer FLSA rule-related questions from HR Break Room listeners and Paycom webinar attendees
