The Department of Labor recently released its long-awaited proposal on April 23, 2024, to increase the minimum salary to qualify for exempt status from $684 per week to $844 per week or from $35,568 to $43,888 annually on July 1, 2014, and to $1,128 per week or $58,656/year on January 1, 2025.  Get ready for the upcoming changes. Not being prepared for the changes can be devastating to your organization from both a financial and employee relations standpoint.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is one of the most misunderstood employment laws in the country. It governs the payment of wages and who must be paid overtime. To make things more confusing, the Department of Labor has implemented several exemptions to the requirement to pay overtime such as the White-Collar Exemptions and the 7(i) exemption for retail and service establishments. The DOL also allows different ways of computing overtime pay. 

Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, New York, and Washington have developed their own rules that are different from Federal Law. Thirty-three states have implemented minimum wages that are higher than the Federal Minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. In addition, many municipalities have their minimum wage laws.

Many organizations do not understand their responsibilities regarding what types of positions qualify as white-collar exemptions, how to handle commissions, shift differential, and production bonuses for hourly employees, and other nuances of complying such as handling training and travel time.  

The FLSA is a Federal Law, but employers must know that many states, municipalities, and any type of governmental contract may have their own rules regarding minimum wage and overtime.

Maintaining compliance is critical to your business.  Failing to do so can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
