On June 30, 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued a proposed rule to modify the “white collar exemptions” provided by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The white collar exemptions are minimum wage and overtime exception rules for executive, administrative, professional, outside sales and computer employees.
Specifically, the proposed rule seeks to:
– Increase the salary requirements for employees to be considered exempt;
– Implement automatic salary requirement updates; and
– Receive feedback on whether modifying the duties test is necessary at this time.
