On May 18, 2016, the US Department of Labor issued significant final changes to the rules exempting certain employees from overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the federal wage and hour law.
Under current law, in order to be properly classified as exempt from overtime, an employee must meet two tests: (1) he/she must be compensated on a salary basis at a rate of at least $455/week and (2) his/her primary job duties must fall within one of the recognized categories of exemption. These are the exemptions for executive, administrative, professional, and certain computer and outside sales staff (also known as the “white collar” exemptions).
The changes, which go into effect on December 1, will increase the minimum weekly salary requirement to $913/week or $47,476/year. As a result, many currently exempt employees may be reclassified as non-exempt, entitling them to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours/week.
Join us for this important webinar to understand the full scope of the changes to the rules, the impact they may have on your organization, and what you should be thinking about now in order to come into compliance.
