Wage and Hour Litigation: Trends and Tactics

Tags:  (2016 Jul 27th - 1:00pm)

In July of this year, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is expected to issue new rules that raise the eligibility ceiling for overtime pay from its current $23,660 annually to as high as $50,440. These changes could make approximately 4.6 million more workers automatically eligible for overtime pay-- and bring about a significant increase in lawsuits.

Is your agency prepared?

There are three major changes to the proposed rule:

1. Exempt Salary Threshold: The first and most substantial proposed change is to the exempt salary threshold requirement.   The proposed regulations increase the salary threshold from $23,660 per year to $50,440 per year for full-time, salaried workers.

2. HCE Threshold: The new rule is expected to increase the HCE threshold from $100,00 per year to $122, 148 per year, which will mean fewer employees will qualify as HCEs.
3. Annual Threshold Adjustment: This is a self-adjusting, yearly update to the salary threshold and HCE threshold.  It will either be updated based on a fixed percentile of wages, or it will be updated based on the consumer price index.
