What Is The New FLSA Overtime Rule?  

  • The rule extends overtime protections to 4.2 million workers who are not currently eligible under federal law.
  • Workers who earn as much as $47,476 a year ($913 a week) will have to be paid overtime, even if they're classified as a manager or professional.
  • The Department of Labor will increase the salary threshold every three years. Based on current projections, the salary threshold is expected to rise to more than $51,000 with its first update on January 1, 2020.
  • Employers must comply with the new regulations by December 1, 2016.
  • 52,000 individuals in Arkansas are projected to be affected by this new rule.
  • Read the text of the rule here.
  • Read more at SHRM's FLSA Resource Page.
  • WCASHRM will host another event in the next couple of months to provide more information and resources about this rule.

Attention HR Professionals!

2016 WCASHRM Board.

The West Central Arkansas Society for Human Resource Management (WCASHRM) association was organized in 1987 to encourage the exchange of ideas in human resource (HR) management and to promote the growth and development of sound human resource practices in business and the community.

“Members of WCASHRM are local professionals who are involved in the management, administration, development or study of human resources,” says chapter President, Deanna Harris. "Our membership area consists of Hot Springs, Hot Springs Village, Malvern, Arkadelphia, Glenwood, Benton, and the surrounding areas."

The primary purpose of WCASHRM is to be a recognized leader in human resource management by providing high quality, dynamic and responsible programs and services to its’ members; actively supporting or opposing legislation or other matters based upon employer needs and professional goals; and establishing relationships within the community that will make a positive impact and contribution to the quality of life for the community.

WCASHRM is the local affiliated chapter of the national Society of Human Resource Management organization, the world’s largest association devoted to HR management. SHRM’s mission is to serve the needs of the HR professional and advance the HR profession.

SHRM members, who join our local chapter, have no dues, and local chapter only member dues are $60.

WCASHRM meets at 11:30 a.m. the last Tuesday of each month at CHI St. Vincent. Each meeting includes lunch, discussion of HR matters, and a guest speaker of HR interest. Guests are always welcome. (April and July are 8:00 a.m. meetings.)

For more information about WCASHRM, visit our website at www.wcashrm.org, email wcashrm@wcashrm.org.


Information on joining WCASHRM!  Join the local SHRM affiliated chapter!

Join your fellow HR professionals to be a part of a dynamic organization. Enhance your career and your knowledge and join today!Due to the continued success of the Managers Seminar, the WCASHRM Board of Directors voted to waive the membership dues for WCASHRM members who are also SHRM members. This will only apply to members with WCASHRM as their PRIMARY CHAPTER. (IMPORTANT: Please provide your SHRM # on your application, so we can verify that you are a SHRM member.) Once you join, your membership is automatically renewed unless you advise otherwise.

Membership is free for national SHRM members who designate WCASHRM as your primary chapter. (You should provide the chapter with your SHRM ID on your membership application.) If you are a member of another Arkansas Chapter or not a national SHRM member, membership dues should be remitted to join WCASHRM. (Note: Dues are pro-rated after the 3rd quarter.)

The application can be found here: 2016 WCASHRM Membership Application and email it to membership@wcashrm.org or mail with payment to the address on the application.
