In May 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor published a Final Rule that would have raised the minimum standard salary level for overtime-exempt “white collar” employees from $455/week ($23,660/year) to $913/week ($47,476/year). However, in November 2016 a federal court blocked the DOL’s Final Rule from taking effect nationwide. For now, this court action preserves the status quo on a nationwide basis while the court determines the DOL’s authority to make the Final Rule as well as the Final Rule’s validity.
Although the overtime exemption revision is temporarily blocked, SESCO notes that employers still continue to face the complexities of the exemptions under the current regulation and struggle with determining appropriate applicability. Often, we find a number of misclassified employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act which creates significant liability for the employer.
At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Review white-collar exemption tests
- Prepare for the increase in the white-collar exemption salary requirement
- Discuss the most common wage hour violations and financial liability
