On Monday March 14th Arc Human Capital Founder and Principal Adam Calli had the honor of joining three other prominent practitioners from the HR community to serve as a volunteer panelist for the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) at their headquarters in Washington DC. Sitting before a class of nearly 30 association meeting planners gathered from around the nation, the students had the opportunity to throw any and every question they could think of at the panelists! By the time it was done the participants had discussed harassment, alcohol and marijuana consumption, exempt status, travel and overtime, comp time & more!
As reported here:http://www.hrdive.com/news and here: http://www.npr.org a Texas court has granted a nationwide injunction barring the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule from taking effect on December 1st as expected.
Employers are under no obligation to make any changes to either an employee’s compensation level, exempt classification, or timekeeping procedures as may have been necessary for any of their employees under the rule that was due to take effect next Thursday.
While many employers will feel relief over the removal of the mandate that the DOL estimated would cost businesses $295 million per year and would have effected an estimated 4.2 million workers, they should still proceed with careful reflection as to what to say to their employees, many of whom may have been told by proactive employers months ago to expect a, potentially substantial, raise with their first December paycheck. As Principal Consultant Adam Calli shared, “Remember, they are YOUR employees, not the DOL’s and you have to manage their morale and level of job engagement. Like the old adage says, it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. Keep that in mind when informing effected employees of the postponement and injunction.”
No doubt there will be much more to this story in the weeks to come. Employers are advised to watch their trade publications and the popular press closely for new developments.
Article “Your Guide to an Engaging Open Enrollment” finds Adam Calli quoted and offering ideas to those seeking to succeed!
New posters are required to be posted as of August 1st!!!
