On June 30 , 2015, at the direction of President Obama, the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) issued a proposed rule that would change federal overtime exemptions for administrative, executive, professional, and computer professional employees, the so-called "white collar" worker classifications that have long been exempt from being paid time-and-one-half for working hours over 40 per week.

USDOL’s proposed rule will affect both public and private work by all employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which includes the vast majority of construction contractors, subcontractors and suppliers.

In addition to discussing the key provisions of the proposed overtime rule, ABC General Counsel Maury Baskin will discuss the current federal overtime exemptions for “white-collar” employees. Read the rest of entry »

Just as a contractor should be cognizant of the perils of fire and other business interruptions, a contractor should consider the risk of employee theft in its risk management program.  Rather than assuming that “it cannot happen to me,” a contractor should note the reality of the exposure of an employee stealing from the company and purchase fidelity insurance to cover the risk of employee theft.  In addition, the business should establish sound internal controls to serve as a first line of defense to thwart and detect dishonest schemes by employees.
