Prepare for the Upcoming DOL Overtime Rule Changes to Prevent Future Challenges

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed significant changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rules on August 30, 2023. Once finalized (which is highly likely), these rules will raise the minimum salary for most employees exempt from overtime pay from $684 per week ($35,568 per year) to $1,059 per week ($55,068 per year).

If any of your exempt employees fall into the estimated 3.4 million exempt worker category earning less than the new salary threshold, you'll need to make a decision:

  • Increase Salary: You can choose to raise their weekly salary to meet the new threshold, allowing them to maintain their exempt status.
  • Reclassify as Nonexempt Salaried: Alternatively, you can reclassify them as nonexempt salaried employees, ensuring they receive overtime pay for any hours worked beyond the standard workweek.
  • Reclassify as Nonexempt Hourly: Another option is to reclassify them as nonexempt employees but transition them to hourly status.

Each decision comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and there are various factors to take into account. Starting your preparations early will enable you to make informed choices and be ready to take action once the final rule is in place.

Are you familiar with the new rules, do you have any questions about implementing the rules? Businesses are also having audit issues with the way workers are categorized.
