There are new rules being handed down by the U.S. Department of Labor that will, likely, force business owners to change the way they hire and classify fulltime employees when it comes to possible overtime. It’s also the main reason, according to Lake West Chamber Director Paul Hooper, for a special meeting taking place next week.
The new labor rules are expected to go in effect on the 1st of December. The two-hour informational meeting is set to begin at 2-oclock next Wednesday, the 26th, at the Lake West Chamber office. It is open to any and all businesses.
