THREE WEEKS AND COUNTING BEFORE MINIMUM SALARIES MAY DOUBLE

Bill Grob, Ogletree Deakins

Only a few weeks remain until the U.S. Department of Labor’s revised overtime regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) become effective. With the December 1, 2016, compliance deadline rapidly approaching, employers need to be communicating with employees who will be affected by the overtime changes. In addition, following Tuesday’s surprising presidential election results, employers also should consider refining their communications to take into account potential contingencies.

As previously reported, the revised FLSA regulations will more than double the minimum salary requirements for the FLSA’s major white-collar exemptions from $455 per week to $913 per week. Employees who do not meet the salary requirements and job duties requirements for one of these exemptions, or who do not fall within some other exemption, generally are entitled to receive overtime compensation under the FLSA when they work more than 40 hours in a workweek.

Employers are taking various approaches to comply with the final regulations. Some employees are receiving pay increases to keep them exempt from the overtime requirements. Others are being reclassified as non-exempt (also known as “overtime eligible”) and are seeing their compensation plans adjusted in a variety of ways.

As a general rule, employees should always be notified prospectively of any changes that are going to be made to their compensation, and some states and municipalities have specific requirements regarding the timing and content of such notices.
