  54. Why such an odd amount.. couldn’t they have rounded up to $48? #QBOchat
  55. @mb_bossman that’s exactly who FLSA will effect. Managers and business owners need to know what changes to make now. #QBOchat
  56. @mb_bossman Wow! That’s crazy AND a huge part of the reason for changes. #QBOchat
  57. I understand this is a big change all at once, but businesses have been taking advantage of these middle managers for a LONG time #QBOchat
  58. @QBOchat A1: Still studying it so I know exactly how it will affect my clients – almost all of which are small mom and pops. #QBOchat
  59. Can’t wait to see many of you in IRL (in real life) at #QBConnect! So close and yet so far! #QBOchat
  60. I believe it is an average RT @accountingpeace Why such an odd amount.. couldn’t they have rounded up to $48? #QBOchat
  61. RT @accountingpeace RT @tsheets A1: Starting 12/1, employees making less than $47,467 per year will qualify for overtime pay. #QBOchat
  62. @ledgerdocs Welcome! Quick question – how do you pronounce your first name? πŸ™‚ #QBOchat
  63. RT @tsheets A1: That’s 4.2 MILLION additional employees qualifying for overtime pay. #QBOchat
  64. A1: I just point my clients to the great stuff that @tsheets has published about the #FLSA Overtime Changes… :)…  https://twitter.com/i/web/status/779036060600840193 β€¦
  65. @schultetonya that’s great to know. I would love to connect after this about how @tsheets can help! #QBOchat
  66. LOL @accountingpeace RIGHT? I thought the same thing.. then I thought tax rates? NO .. doesn’t make sense #QBOchat
  67. RT @tsheets A1: Take our quiz to see how much you know about the FLSA!  http://bit.ly/2axg4oZ  #QBOchat
  68. RT @QBOPro RT @accountingpeace RT @tsheets Starting 12/1, employees making less than $47,467 /yr will qualify for overtime pay. #QBOchat
  69. @accountingpeace I think it is because it will be increasing gradually every few years, so they started somewhere #QBOchat
  70. EXACTLY! RT @mb_bossman Crazy. I have some friends who managers at McD’s making less than ~$34k a year working 50-60 hours a week. #QBOchat
  71. @jessicatsheets Another favorite thing gvmt does.. changes thresholds every year. I can’t keep up. #QBOchat
  72. A1: I think it’s a CRITICAL element to the need for time tracking even in a Value-based pricing world. #QBOChat
  73. RIGHT?!? RT @accountingpeace @jessicatsheets Another favorite thing gvmt does.. changes thresholds every year. I can’t keep up. #QBOchat
  74. RT @Kimtuitive A1: I think it’s a CRITICAL element to the need for time tracking even in a Value-based pricing world. #QBOchat
  75. RT @Kimtuitive A1: I think it’s a CRITICAL element to the need for time tracking even in a Value-based pricing world. #QBOchat
  76. @QBOchat A1: does this apply to salaried employees as well as hourly? And what about managers versus workers? #QBOchat
  77. A1: A few clients had some people on the edge and I just said increase their pay. #QBOchat
  78. Excellent advice! RT @CathyIconis A1: A few clients had some people on the edge and I just said increase their pay. #QBOchat
  79. @tsheets There is alot that happens with Salary.. Just moving soneone to salary does NOT make them exempt #QBOchat
  80. @CathyIconis Salaried. Hourly just gets paid for all hours worked. (If not doing that, already a violation of DOL laws from my pov) #QBOchat
  81. RT @Kimtuitive A1: I think it’s a CRITICAL element to the need for time tracking even in a Value-based pricing world. #QBOchat
  82. @jessicatsheets Thanks! Do you see employers just raising their employee’s salaries to get around this? #QBOchat
  83. @alisonatintuit some employees might experience a status change (from non exempt to exempt) and they will then qualify for OT #QBOchat
  84. YES! We have to advise our clients as to how to navigate the change. RT @jazfun @tsheets There is alot that happens with Salary.. #QBOchat
  85. @alisonatintuit some will stay exempt and their salary will increase. Businesses need to know which option to take πŸ™‚ #QBOchat
  86. What if you are a sole prop on draw? Can I start paying myself OT? πŸ˜‰ #QBOchat
  87. Hehehe RT @accountingpeace What if you are a sole prop on draw? Can I start paying myself OT? πŸ˜‰ #QBOchat
  88. @alisonatintuit maybe, but it’s a pretty big jump (about $23,000 to $47,000) and many businesses might not have that extra #QBOchat
  89. @QBOchat A1 There is a duties test that must be taken to help distingush eligible employees  http://bit.ly/1OEUfUV  #QBOchat
  90. @alisonatintuit so some businesses might move their employees to hourly and pay them OT πŸ™‚ #QBOchat
  91. @jazfun important point! Salary is just one text for exemption. Duties is another critical test. #QBOchat
  92. Q2: What steps have you taken/suggested your clients take to ensure they’re FLSA compliant by the Dec deadline? #QBOChat
  93. @jessicatsheets @alisonatintuit If anything, it should force us all to be more efficient with how we work and manage our businesses #QBOchat
  94. RT @jazfun @QBOchat A1 There is a duties test that must be taken to help distingush eligible employees  http://bit.ly/1OEUfUV  #QBOchat
  95. A2: Help clients understand their 3 options: 1) reclassify employees, 2) restrict OT hours, or… #QBOChat
  96. A2: 3) keep the status quo & pay additional OT. Check out the pros & cons of each option:  http://bit.ly/2cUpHyx  #QBOChat
  97. @QBOchat A2: Agreed – move to hourly and pay OT. BUT use @tsheets to monitor OT! #QBOchat
  98. RT @Noelle_TSheets @jazfun important point! Salary is just one text for exemption. Duties is another critical test. #QBOchat

  103. @QBOchat A2: None yet as still understanding. Glad I made it here today! #QBOchat

  121. Yes! This is one thing that my clients need help in. Just emailed yoU! RT @jessicatsheets Record keeping is key! #QBOchat
  122. Record keeping IS key! the DOL requires records of employee hours to be kept for two years. #QBOchat

  131. @Noelle_TSheets what’s the best way for clients to keep records like this? #QBOchat
  132. But my answer to my client is either pay your manager more or stop expecting him to work 60 hours a week #QBOchat
  133. RT @BizBooksCloud But my answer to my client is either pay your manager more or stop expecting him to work 60 hours a week #QBOchat
  134. @ledgerdocs cloud-based time tracking is THE best way to keep records. Clean, easily accessible, in a lawsuit (aka @tsheets!) #QBOchat
  135. RT @BizBooksCloud But my answer to my client is either pay your manager more or stop expecting him to work 60 hours a week #QBOchat
  136. Q3: What % of your clients will be affected by the 12/1 change? Are they making changes now or waitingβ€”why? #QBOChat
  137. @ledgerdocs for record keeping, we want to make sure accurate payroll and time tracking methods are kept. Time stamped, auditable #QBOchat
  138. @QBOchat A3: I should probably take a deeper dive into the ones that need to be informed. #todolist #QBOchat
  139. A3: The more proactive you are, the better off you’ll be in the long run. #QBOChat
  140. @Noelle_TSheets @tsheets completely agree and great to see you can save people time on their tracking πŸ™‚ #QBOchat
  141. @QBOchat A3 well, I don;t have any clients “now” of course, but when I did, almost ALL of my clients would have been affected. #QBOchat
  142. RT @tsheets A3: Find out how much businesses in your state are paying out for wage & hour lawsuits:  http://bit.ly/2cRQqvr  #QBOchat
  143. @QBOchat A3 About 30% Some are on it, some are not making changes. Some are asking me. #QBOchat
  144. @QBOchat A3: anyone who is not a sole prop should be well-informed about the FLSA rules. #QBOchat
  145. @QBOchat A3: 75%. We’ve been working with the bigger ones to implement early. The smaller ones are hesitant. #QBOchat
  146. @QBOchat A3: how are people even LEARNING about it? What if they are not working with an accountant or bookkeeper? #QBOchat
  147. RT @accountingpeace @QBOchat A3: I should probably take a deeper dive into the ones that need to be informed. #todolist #QBOchat

  150. A3: TSheets interviewed industry experts to find the 8 triggers that lead to a majority of FLSA lawsuits. #QBOChat
  151. A3: Triggers include off-the-clock work and sloppy record keeping. See the full list:  http://bit.ly/2cOh9NI  #QBOChat
  152. @alisonatintuit @QBOchat Exactly. So many clients end up with us because they were uninformed and it came back to bite them. #QBOchat
  153. @QBOchat A3: We’re finding the employees who are moving from salaried to hourly are annoyed, some offended. #QBOchat
  154. @AmyWalkerCPA @QBOchat Interesting. They feel it is an insult to be moved from salaried to hourly? #QBOchat
  155. @QBOchat A3 businesses with ‘off the clock work’ (check your email at home anyone?) will be affected 12/1 for sure! #QBOchat
  156. A3 only two affected clients, one is a restaurant who is going to give the manager a raise of $2K to get above the limit #QBOchat

  181. @QBOchat A4: Simple, but necessary: Update employee policy to require approval for OT. #QBOchat
  182. @QBOchat A4: I just think about the additional tracking to be done. Who pulled the short straw for that? #QBOchat
  183. A4: Implementing mobile time tracking will give an accurate view of labor hours… #QBOChat
