In May of this year, the U.S. Department of Labor announced changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that will impact the rules on overtime pay.  The new law will become effective on December 1, 2016.  These changes require employers to re-evaluate the exempt/non-exempt classification of positions due to the increase in the minimum salary threshold for the overtime exemption from $23,660 to $47,476 per year.  Under the FLSA, positions must meet both the duties test and the salary test to qualify for the executive, administrative, or professional exemption from the minimum wage and the overtime provisions of the law.  This new law does not automatically change overtime eligibility or require employers to increase salaries to the new exemption threshold.  However, employers are encouraged to audit current exempt positions to determine the proper classification under the new law and make appropriate adjustments to achieve compliance.
