Order Reprints

Tire Industry Association (TIA) members can participate in a free webinar on Dec. 8: "Emerging Issues in Employment Law - Overtime Pay and Control."

The webinar will be conducted by Enquiron as part of the Federated Employment Practices Network, a part of Federated Insurance. The webinar begins at 2 p.m.

It will focus on the expanded application of the Fair Labor Standards Act to make additional categories of employees eligible for overtime. The U.S. Department of Labor's proposed rule also blurs the lines between independent contractors and employees, and creates unexpected joint employer relationships impacting franchises, temporary staffing relationships, and specialty vendors. The webinar will decode the proposed rule and identify the issues employers will need to review.

The presentation will be led by Robin Taylor Symons, co-managing partner of the Miami Gordon & Rees LLP office and a member of the Labor and Employment, Insurance, and Commercial Litigation Practice Groups.

Symons will focus on:

  • emerging trends and developments,
  • minimum wage and overtime initiatives,
  • implications for employers, and
  • new rules expected in 2016.

This webinar is especially recommended for compliance officers, chief financial officers, human resource professionals, general counsel, internal auditors, and risk managers. TIA members may register online.
