Sessions and Speakers

Wage Theft and the Final Rule; David Skovholt, Minnesota Department of Labor and Corey Walton, United States Department of Labor
Wage Theft: Minnesota recently enacted a new Wage Theft Law, which amends existing state labor laws and adds new wage and hour requirements, protections and sanctions. We'll hear from our state's department of labor on the requirements for all Minnesota employers which include an employee notice requirement, plus additional information for already-required earnings statements and employer record-keeping.

Final Rule: On September 24, 2019, the Department of Labor issued a final rule that updates and revises the regulations which govern the exemptions from minimum wage and overtime pay requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).  Among the major changes is an update to the salary and compensation levels that qualify employees for an exemption from the FLSA’s minimum wage and overtime rules.  Because these changes are expected to impact over a million workers, it’s crucial that employers be brought up to speed before the rules become effective on January 1, 2020. 

2020 Legislative Update; Sara Grafstrom, ARRM and Phil Griffin, Ewald Consulting
ARRM’s 2020 legislative priorities and what to expect in the upcoming session.

2019 ARRM Industry Survey: An Early Look at the Results;
Ken Bence, ARRM

ARRM member organizations are surveyed every year or so to give us insights to experiences and trends that affect them. The 2019 ARRM Industry Survey sought to gather in-depth information on wage and workforce issues that impact ARRM’s members specifically. Many of the questions were similar to those from previous ARRM surveys, but were modified to be consistent with new DHS surveys, both to simplify the collection of data for the organizations, and to make valid comparisons to the results DHS will report. In this session, we will present some early analyses from the responses received by the due date of November 1, 2019.

Minimum Wage and Sick and Safe Time Laws; Amir Malik, City of Minneapolis

Program Integrity Changes to Home and Community-Based Services; Stephen Horn, Department of Human Services
Better understand the new legislative billing and documentation requirements, specifically as it relates to Adult Day, Durable Medical Equipment, and Waiver Transportation Services.

Disability Waivers Data Collection; Cost Reporting and the Labor Market Report Survey; Meghan Lindblom, Department of Human Services
Come to learn about two new requirements for disability waiver providers, cost reporting and labor market survey. Both are efforts to collect more information to support the disability waiver system
