Employers must steer clear of the misconception that job descriptions alone can "make" employees exempt under the FLSA'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.

At long last, the U.S. Labor Department has disclosed the details of its final revised regulations defining the executive, administrative, professional, "outside salesman", and derivative exemptions under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act's Section 13(a)(1).

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.

Coming changes in at least some of the U.S. Labor Department's definitions for the federal Fair Labor Standards Act's Section 13(a)(1) "white collar" exemptions are leading employers to evaluate whether employees they treat as exempt meet all of the duties-related requirements.

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.
