The USDOL has proposed to update its guidance regarding how the "regular rate" is calculated for purposes of overtime pay.

USDOL's proposed white-collar exemption changes a/k/a Overtime Rule 2.0 includes a proposed minimum salary threshold of $679 per week.  The period for public comment will close on May 21, 2019.

USDOL's long-awaited proposed white-collar exemption changes a/k/a Overtime Rule 2.0 includes a proposed minimum salary threshold of $679 per week.

The USDOL has removed the infamous "20% Rule" from its Field Operations Handbook, but employers should be mindful of its disjointed approach to revisions across and within agency materials.

This week USDOL increased the civil money penalties it can impose for certain FLSA violations.

USDOL reportedly is submitting a proposed rule for review by the federal Office of Management and Budget.  Publication on target for first quarter.

Despite most of the government being occupied with the "shutdown" dilemma, the unaffected USDOL has remained busy and gifted us with two opinion letters today.

USDOL has finally clarified the so-called “20% Rule” limiting the use of the FLSA tip credit even with respect to individuals qualifying as “tipped employees”, and revised the Field Operations Handbook accordingly.

The USDOL recently announced that it will continue its Payroll Audit Independent Determination (PAID) program, and wasted no time beginning its efforts to further educate employers and attorneys about the benefits of the program.

USDOL has announced that it does not expect to address the FLSA white-collar exemptions (the so-called “overtime rule”) until March 2019 and has slotted "joint employment" for December 2018 instead.
