The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is fighting a court ruling that put new FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) overtime regulations on hold. Last month, a district court in Texas issued a nationwide preliminary injunction blocking the DOL’s final rule that sought to raise the required salary level to qualify for white collar exemptions.

On December 1, the final Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rule was set to go into effect, but 10 days ago, a Texas district judge issued a preliminary injunction halting the rule. Although it is possible that the government’s appeal of the injunction could succeed, it’s more likely that any changes to the overtime rules will wait for the incoming administration.

The slow death of the 9-5 workday, together with the arrival of the new FLSA overtime rules, which do into effect on December 1, could create one of the bigger wage-and-hour pitfalls for employers in 2017 and beyond.

A round up of workplace developments and legal trends to help keep HR ahead of the curve

May 19, 2016

 

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.

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.

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. The DOL is expected to announce the final rule by July 2016.

2016 is shaping up to be a year of employee classification issues for employers. Between the classification problems within the gig economy and the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) new overtime rules, many HR professionals’ “What keeps us up at night” list just got longer.

We’re less than 2 months into 2016, but the pace at which President Obama is advancing his workplace public policy priorities through the regulatory process can easily be referred to as an onslaught.  Nowhere is this more evident than in the proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime rules.  And, as  SHRM’s Director of Congressional and Legislative Affairs, I’ve heard so many of your voices load and clear.
