The platform allows large employers to search for their needs using a range of categories, such as events/catering and promotional items, but also using targeted searches, such as minority, women, or LGBT owned businesses, or businesses founded specifically in San Francisco. Visit SF Biz Connect today and buy local.

New Federal Labor Laws
President Obama directed the Department of Labor to update the overtime regulations for executive administrative and professional employees. Current law entitles all workers in the U.S. to overtime pay, unless they are exempted because they are paid on fixed, preset salaries; are engaged in executive administrative, or professional duties; and are paid at least $23,660 per year ($455 per week). Under the new rule, the threshold will be increased to $47,476 ($913 per week) effective December 1, 2016. For more information specific to small businesses and non-profits, click here.

This past summer our Collegian Eric Welch studied Spanish and accounting abroad in Ecuador. He is currently majoring in Political Science at Florida A&M University.
