Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) New Regulations

Human Resources would like to provide information regarding an important federal compensation update. The Department of Labor (DOL) has made changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which controls the federal rules and regulations for compensation of hourly (non-exempt from overtime) and salaried (exempt from overtime) employees.

This federal change in the FLSA will impact an estimated 4.2 million employees who are currently salaried in the United States and will become effective December 1, 2016.
