Giddy-Up, Employers! The New Overtime Rule Is Comin’ In 2020

Are you an EXEMPT employee? or do you have EXEMPT employees? Please be aware of a drastic change in the FLSA salary threshold. Starting January 1, 2020, the FLSA salary threshold will be increasing to $35,568 annually, or $684 weekly. To put things into perspective, the salary threshold for exemption was $23,660 per year, or $455 per week before the overtime rule update.

What that means is, if an employee makes $35,568 or less, they are not exempt from overtime laws. If they work more than 40 hours in a designated workweek, then you are required to pay time and half. Here is an article from Forbes that gives more detail. https://www.forbes.com/sites/mikekappel/2019/12/26/giddy-up-employers-the-new-overtime-rule-is-comin-in-2020/#2e437fcb37a1

Starting in 2020, overtime rules are going to get a little more complicated. Brush up on the new overtime rule and start preparing your payroll before the new year begins.

Building a Gender-Balanced Workforce: Supporting Male Teachers | NAEYC

GOOD MORNING everyone, so... we had a very interesting discussion in our business class last weekend about hiring MEN to be early childhood teachers. It was so interesting to me, how many business owners are uncomfortable hiring men to be preschool teachers in their programs. I found this article from NAEYC touching on several of the HUGE benefits OF hiring men in our industry. https://www.naeyc.org/resources/pubs/yc/sept2019/building-gender-balanced-workforce-supporting-male-teachers

Additionally, it is ILLEGAL to discriminate on the basis of gender. AS LEADERS, learn and grow, educate yourselves, build your confidence to communicate the decisions you make to offer the VERY BEST care and education for children!!! We are in a workforce CRISIS, we can not afford to not consider 50% of the American population as potential employee candidates.

"As young children grow, they need to know that people of all genders have an important role to play in their care and education. Early childhood education plays a critical part in young children’s gender identity development (Solomon 2016). When young children do not have relationships with male teachers and caregivers, traditional gender stereotypes are reinforced, particularly as they relate to children’s understanding of who is responsible for their growth and learning (Aina & Petronella 2011; Brownhill & Oates 2016)."

READ ON and if you want to see wonderful examples of MEN in the classroom come to our Virginia Beach Leadership Academy hosted by Joyce Baylon Oandasan, Director of LEAF SPRING School.

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds. Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
