On June 30, 2015, the US Department of Labor (DOL) announced its proposed rule to update the Fair Labor Standards Act’s “white collar” exemption tests. As many employers are aware, the tests were last updated in 2004, and the goal of this update is to strengthen the tests so more employees are entitled to overtime. The main focus of the proposal is to update the minimum salary levels required, in part, to satisfy the exemption tests.

Join us for a one-hour webinar to understand what the proposal contains and how it can affect your organization.

Topics will include:

  • The proposed increase to the minimum weekly and annual salary threshold, and how such levels would be determined
  • The proposal to automatically increase salary levels in the future
  • The expected timeline for a final rule
  • What employers should do in light of the proposed changes, including consideration of compensation plan options and communications strategy in the event of a reclassification
