The Department of Labor’s (“DOL”) new rules governing the executive, administrative and professional exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act will go into effect December 1, 2016. According to the DOL’s estimation, approximately 4.7 million workers nationwide could potentially lose their status as exempt employees under these new rules. The proposed rules include the following:

  • Raising the standard salary threshold to the 40th percentile of weekly earnings for full-time salaried workers, which is projected to $47,476 annually;
  • Increasing the total annual compensation requirement needed for the highly compensated employee exemption to the 90th percentile of weekly earnings for full time salaried workers, which would be $134,044 annually; and
  • Establishing a mechanism to automatically increase the salary thresholds on an annual basis.

Please join us as Ryan Sanada discusses the rule changes and strategies to:

  • Identify how many employees will be impacted by the rule change;
  • Estimate the overall costs to the organization resulting from the higher salary levels;
  • Identify ways to minimize the added costs of the higher salary threshold requirements; and
  • Communicate with the employees affected by the changes.
