DOL Takes Another Crack at Modifying the Overtime Rules

By Scott Mirsky, Principal

Summary: The DOL has proposed new rules that would substantially increase the minimum salary that employees must be paid to qualify for the white collar and highly compensated exemptions to the FMLA overtime requirements.  The increase to the white collar salary threshold would be markedly lower than that which the Obama Administration attempted to implement and, as with the Obama-era regulations, the duties tests associated with the exemptions will not be impacted.
