On May 18, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued the new final overtime regulations that will affect all U.S. employers subject to the FLSA. These revisions, which will become effective on December 1, 2016, include a number of sweeping changes to current overtime exemptions, including significant increases to the minimum salary that employees must be paid to be considered exempt under the executive, administrative and professional exemptions. Ogletree Deakins’ Overtime Solutions Center is intended to provide the latest news concerning the overtime regulations and provide additional resources for employers in this important area.
