DOL Notice of Proposed Rulemaking updating the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) white collar exemptions.

The DOL has released its highly anticipated Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Updating the FLSA Exemptions for White Collar Employees for the 60 Day Public Comment Period. After the Public Comment and Final Rulemaking Cycle, the new changes will probably take place in 2016. The DOL projects that by 2016, when the final rule would go into effect, the salary level would be at or near $50,440 – which is more than double the current threshold. It would also raise the salary level for highly compensated employees from $100,000 to about $122,000. It would behoove everyone to take a hard look at the proposed changes, provide your feedback to DOL and simultaneously began taking a look at your workforce and planning for the effects the proposed changes will have on your organization.
