Beginning next year, employers will have to pay
time-and-one-half overtime premium pay to many, many employees who now earn a
straight salary. Under the U.S. Department of Labor’s proposed new rule, nobody
earning less than $50,440 will be exempt from overtime. No matter the job, no
matter the type of work, if the employee is paid less than $50,440 a year, the
employer must pay overtime. And the employer must keep time records. How will
your organization deal with the major change? How will you minimize the strain
it will place on your budget? This one-and-one-half hour webinar will examine
the proposed new rules and how government employers can prepare for it. The
leaders will be Diane Juffras of the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Government and
Drake Maynard, former managing partner North Carolina Office of State Personnel
and independent human resources consultant. The live webinar was held October
Many local governments in North Carolina are beginning to use online tools such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to communicate with citizens. What are important considerations for initiating or building a social media component for citizen communication and input? How might government work with local media, nonprofit groups and others to support an online version of “the public square”?
This webinar provides many examples from large and small NC jurisdictions using social media. We explore the why, and “how tos” for content management and free speech, staff training and responsibilities, and developing appropriate policies to guide social media use. Material includes results of a survey of over 100 NC local government jurisdictions, practical tips and state and local resources on how social media relates to open and transparent government movements.
