November Monthly Meeting:  U.S. DOL Wage and Hour Update



After much anticipation, on September 24, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) announced the new final overtime rule that goes into effect January 1, 2020, and raises the salary level for exempt executive, administrative, and professional employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The DOL also raised the annual compensation test for a highly compensated employee.  The new final overtime rule could have a significant impact on employers. In fact, the DOL estimates that 1.3 million additional U.S. workers will be eligible for overtime in January. The DOL also estimates that workers will receive an additional $298.8 million in extra pay each year once the new rule is implemented.


This presentation will:


·         Briefly recap the history leading up to the DOL’s current final overtime rule;

·         Address the new salary thresholds for white collar exemptions and highly compensated employees;

·         Explain the role incentive payments may have in relation to the requisite salary thresholds; and

·         Discuss other recent DOL developments concerning tip regulations and the fluctuating workweek method of computing overtime.
