On April 15, 2011, a public hearing was held in Trenton on a proposed amendment to N.J.A.C. 12:56-6.1 that concerns exemptions from overtime for executive, administrative, professional, and outside sales employees. The New Jersey Department of Labor is proposing to repeal its existing rules regarding these exemptions (which are, in certain respects, more onerous for employers than the FLSA exemptions) and replace them with the federal overtime exemption regulations. The goal is to eliminate any inconsistencies between the federal and state rules on this topic.
