“I’ll take the overtime rule for $1,000, Alex.”

Wouldn’t it be great if Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) issues were only topics on a game show? If you were wrong, the value of the question would merely get deducted from your winnings.

The first thought that went through my mind when the Department of Labor (DOL) issued its final rule on changes to the overtime exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was this: DOL missed a real opportunity to create a rule that works for both employees and employers.

Well, actually…

It isn’t every day when a Human Resources Director from a small local government in Pennsylvania travels to Washington, DC.  But, that opportunity presented itself to me and two other HR advocates earlier this month.

In 2004, there were significant changes to the parts of the FLSA that addressed overtime exemptions and 12 years later, we’re going to see some more changes…probably as soon as May 2016!

On June 30, 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) Wage and Hour Division proposed sweeping changes to the regulations that govern the white-collar overtime exemptions, to include raising the minimum salary level for exemption to $50,440 annually.
