Last year, we sent an alert about the U.S. Department of Labor's proposed regulations on the Fair Labor Standards Act's "white collar" exemptions. Well...they're here. The final rule was announced last week and, as expected, it more than doubles the salary threshold for most exempt workers to $47,476 per year beginning December 1, 2016.
Millions of employees will now be eligible for overtime pay who weren’t previously.
Key provisions of the final rule:
Note: The rule allows employers to use nondiscretionary bonuses and incentive payments (including commissions) to satisfy up to 10 percent of the standard salary level for white collar employees. This is an addition to the regulations, as employers were not previously permitted to do this.
What does this mean for your organization?
There's no time like the present! Your organization should review and audit all exempt positions now, to ensure compliance with the existing regulations and the new salary threshold prior to the December 1st deadline.
