Salary Threshold Legislation Review

FLSA – On December 1st, the federal annual salary threshold for employees exempt from overtime pay will double, increasing from $23,660 to 47,476. Employees who make less than the threshold must be paid time-and-a-half for any hours worked beyond the 40-hour workweek. Many employers will not be able to increase salaried employees’ pay to the new higher amount so those employees will become non-exempt.

NOTE FROM RANDY: FOR YOUR OWN INFORMATION, A FEDERAL JUDGE JUST RECENTLY PUT A HOLD ON THIS REGULATION CHANGE TO THE FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT. However, please proceed as if the new regulation is in effect.
