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.
USDOL reportedly is submitting a proposed rule for review by the federal Office of Management and Budget. Publication on target for first quarter.
In an opinion illustrating the tangled web we weave when de-facto legislation takes place outside of Congress, the Ninth Circuit in Marsh v. J. Alexander's gave deference to the USDOL's sub-regulatory "20% Rule", restricting an FLSA tipped employee's activities, essentially on the basis that the agency's position was previously available online and that employers were therefore presumed to have notice of its potential effect.
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.
