Complying with the New Overtime Rules: An Employer Perspective
Final overtime regulations are expected to go into effect on August 23, 2004. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued these revised rules in an attempt to simplify and update current overtime exemption requirements. Although these revised rules have been met with mixed reviews, congressional efforts to block the rules have thus far been unsuccessful, and experts believe that the rules will most likely go into effect as intended on August 23, 2004.

You Name It, Jacksonville Has It
Bold New City of the South, City on the Move, Gateway to Florida, the First Coast, the River City--whatever the nickname, Jacksonville is the place to be. In the early days, the sharp bend where the wide expanse of the north-flowing St. Johns River abruptly changes its course easterly to the Atlantic Ocean was simply called "Cowford," the narrowest part of the river that would allow cattle to cross on the way to market.
