New Overtime Exemption Regulations

punch cardThe U.S. DOL’s proposed regulations regarding overtime exemptions are expected to be announced this month, and it is anticipated that with these regulations the number of employees who qualify for overtime exemptions will drastically decrease. Anticipated changes include a new salary threshold (which could double the current salary threshold) and a quantitative primary duty test. Employers are encouraged to initiate a review of their current exempt positions, even before the proposed regulations are announced, as it is expected that the final regulations will go into effect very quickly.
