Fair Labor Standards Act Update
Kyle R. Still, Wyrick Robbins Yates & Ponton, LLP

The Department of Labor’s long awaited white collar exemptions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) regulations were released in May of 2016. These regulations significantly raise the weekly salary requirement for exempt employees, amounting to a 100% increase. The DOL predicts that 4.2 million workers will become newly eligible for overtime. The regulation also includes several traps that unwary employers should analyze thoroughly.

This presentation will cover what obligations the regulation places on employers, as well as what steps employers should take to comply prior to December 1, 2016, when the regulation goes into effect. Knowledge gained will include:

• Overview of the Fair Labor Standards Act
• Differences between exempt and non-exempt employees
• Explanation of changes to the “White Collar” exemptions
• Legal and strategic considerations regarding compliance with the regulation
• Use of incentive compensation to meet obligations
• Traps for the unwary included in the regulation
• Conducting an internal audit
• Developing a compliance strategy
