Posts tagged "highly compensated" exemption.

The first of several USDOL "listening" sessions provided few answers.  The primary question remains whether the agency will listen this time around as it takes on the FLSA's white-collar exemptions.

Some might find U.S. Labor Department "Fact Sheets" to be useful summaries or overviews in evaluating exemption status, but these materials are not themselves the definitions of exempt status under the FLSA's Section 13(a)(1).

Employers who are currently relying upon a "highly compensated" version of the FLSA's white-collar exemptions should carefully consider the 2016/2017 transitional implications of the higher "total annual compensation" dollar amount that goes into effect on December 1.
