FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) Back to the Basics


Held live on June 4, 2024

The Department of Labor’s (DOL) increased salary threshold for overtime eligibility takes effect July 1, 2024. This means you may need to reclassify some employees as non-exempt, making them eligible for overtime pay. However, the rule faces legal challenges. Court cases could delay or modify its implementation.

Next Steps:

  • Review your workforce: Identify employees potentially affected by the new salary threshold.
  • Develop a plan: Decide whether to reclassify employees or adjust salaries to maintain exempt status.
  • Monitor legal developments: Stay updated on the court cases (e.g. Plano Chamber of Commerce v. U.S. Department of Labor) to adapt your plan as needed.

Abdo’s HR & Payroll advisors and the workplace attorneys from Blethen Berens held this informative session to break down the complexities of FLSA regulations related to exempt employees.
