The proposed changes to overtime compensation will take effect soon which leaves little time to implement changes to absorb the increase cost of providing overtime pay and reorganize business structure. Labor and Employment attorneys Anne Chapman and Marisa Powers will speak about how these proposed changes will affect businesses, employers, customers and the local economy.
