Federal District Judge Amos L. Mazzant has denied the U.S. Department of Labor's request to halt proceedings in his court while it appeals the preliminary injunction he granted preventing salary-related changes in the FLSA's "white collar" exemption requirements from taking effect.

With only about 60 days to go, we continue to urge employers to move forward with their final preparations for the increased dollar-amount thresholds under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act's so-called "white collar" exemptions.

Two suits have been filed challenging the U.S. Labor Department's impending increases to the dollar-amount thresholds for most of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act’s so-called "white collar" exemptions.

It seems unlikely that recent Congressional proposals will succeed in stopping, deferring, changing, or curtailing the enforcement of the U.S. Labor Department's coming increases in the minimum dollar thresholds required for most of the FLSA's so-called "white collar" exemptions.

According to Bloomberg BNA, reports are that the new minimum salary for the federal Fair Labor Standards Act's Section 13(a)(1) "white collar" exemptions will annualize to "about" $47,000.

What if there is already a way to "credit" various non-salary compensation against an increased salary minimum?

The publication date for the U.S. Labor Department's revised federal Fair Labor Standards Act's Section 13(a)(1) "white collar" exemption definitions remains uncertain.  But a growing consensus is that they are likely to be released within the next four weeks or so.

Congress has responded to the U.S. Labor Department's impending revisions of its FLSA Section 13(a)(1) exemption definitions by introducing nullifying legislation.

The U.S. Labor Department has submitted its final revised regulatory definitions of the FLSA's Section 13(a)(1) exemptions for review by the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

U.S. Solicitor of Labor M. Patricia Smith has reportedly said again today that the U.S. Labor Department's revised regulatory definitions of the FLSA's Section 13(a)(1) exemptions will be released in July.
