During the FRF/FPMA Fall Meeting and Retail Summit, Linda Edwards, Esq., a member of the Employment & Labor team from FRF Chairman’s Circle member, Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell, hosted a session focused on the recent federal Department of Labor overtime regulations to clarify the issue for members and what it could mean for your business. For those who couldn’t attend the Summit, we felt her presentation, and the implications on Florida businesses, were important enough for us to share with our entire membership. So below is a link to her comments, powerpoint and questions from membership. We hope you’ll find this helpful as you prepare your business accordingly:
