Thanks to the U.S. Department of Labor, the American workforce will have to adjust to new overtime rules later this year. In case you missed the webinar by Scott Flick of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLC on June 22, you can access his comprehensive presentation here. This is a subject management and HR professionals don't want to miss.
Some folks at the FCC are wading through submissions from the television spectrum auction that were due at the end of March, while others are wading through responses to the 193-item EAS Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that were due in June. Changes are coming down the pike in both areas.
On Wednesday, September 28, at 2:20 p.m. EDT, there will be another National EAS Test. New this time around is that stations will have to submit two digital filings in the FCC's Electronic Test Report System. The first must be within 24 hours, and a more detailed report is due 45 days after the test. Time for your engineers and operational folks to brush up on ETRS!
