ComplianceHR Rolls Out Navigator OT, New Online Tool to Help HR Execs Determine if Workers are Exempt from Overtime Pay Rules


Online solution is first of its kind to provide fast and accurate guidance on employees’ overtime exemption eligibility

New York, NY – February 29, 2016 – ComplianceHR, an award-winning provider of Web-based employment and compliance solutions, has launched Navigator OT, the first online tool to provide human resources executives with immediate and actionable guidance regarding their employees’ overtime exemption eligibility.

“Determining whether an employee has sufficient ‘white collar’ type responsibility to be exempt from overtime pay can be a very hard call to make, and making the wrong call can result in substantial financial penalties,” said Lori Brown, president of ComplianceHR. “Navigator OT is an advanced tool that helps HR executives determine quickly and accurately which employees are entitled to overtime wages when they work extended hours.”

Navigator OT combines the subject matter expertise of Littler Mendelson, the global labor & employment law firm, with software developer Neota Logic’s revolutionary expert systems platform. The tool is built with next-generation technology that delivers world-class subject matter expertise at lightning-fast Internet speed and scale.

After completing an easy-to-use online questionnaire, Navigator OT applies all relevant federal and state tests, then unlocks the power of its proprietary engine of more than 1,800 reported court decisions and Department of Labor (DOL) opinion letters that have been evaluated by the nation’s leading wage-hour experts. The result is a clear, actionable risk assessment pegging the strength of each applicable exemption, delivered with expertly reasoned suggestions on how to lower the risk of misclassification. Together with the risk result, Navigator OT provides a summary of the federal and state exemption standards and a transcript of answers to the online questionnaire.

The launch of Navigator OT is particularly timely given the DOL’s pending changes to overtime pay regulations.

“As former Administrator of the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour division, I couldn’t be more proud of this tool and the expert results it delivers instantly to employers large and small,” said Tammy McCutchen, V.P. & Managing Director, Product Strategy. “Our launch of Navigator OT should give employers ample runway to examine their classifications and realize the benefits of Navigator OT before the changes become effective.”
