    On May 17, 2016 the United States Department of Labor released its long-awaited final rule revising the salary test for the "white collar" exemptions to the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"). The new rule, effective December 1, 2016, is expected to impact some 4.2 million salaried workers based simply on the revision of the salary threshold for exemption. The most significant change is the increase of that threshold for the executive, professional, and administrative exemptions from $455 per week to $913 per week.

    It is essential for employers to begin strategic preparations for the significant changes ahead.
    Get up-to-speed on this important new
    development and help your organization get into compliance with the new rule.
