Are you planning for the new overtime exemption rules? You should be.

March 31, 2016

Within the next few months, the U.S. Department of Labor is primed to publish new regulations that will dramatically change the landscape of who falls within the scope of the white collar exemptions for overtime pay. One change that will almost assuredly occur is an increase to the minimum salary for qualifying for exempt status from its current annual rate of $23,660 to more than $50,000. 

Once the final regulations are rolled out, they will likely become effective 60 days thereafter. Even though the details are not yet known, enough is known for employers to start planning now. Waiting until the regulations become official could force employers to rush into compliance without carefully considering all of the options for complying, the implications of complying, and how to prepare their supervisors and employees for working under the new rules.
