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.

In a recent question and answer interview, Brian Dickens identified changes to federal regulations as an immediate priority for the Office of Human Resources.  The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), recently amended, governs federal minimum wage and overtime pay requirements. This amendment was widely published as “the new overtime rule”. The new rule doubles the minimum salary for employees to qualify as “exempt” from the requirement of paying overtime for any hours worked in excess of 40 in a work week. Effective December 1, 2016, the new minimum salary will be $913 a week (or $47,476 per year). The previous threshold was $455 per week ($23,660 per year).
