Wage and Hour Laws: FLSA and Anticipated Changes in 2023
Amendments to FLSA are anticipated in late Summer 2023 with respect to the job duties tests and salary levels. For over a year, the Department of Labor has been teasing the imminent release of new proposed rules raising the white-collar salary threshold that makes exempt employees eligible for overtime pay. Originally scheduled to drop in spring 2022, the update is now penciled in for late August 2023. There’s speculation the delay is because the changes will be much more extensive than just raising the minimum salary threshold that qualifies for overtime pay.
Join us to learn the anticipated changes to salary levels and job duties tests in 2023.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly referred to as the Wage and Hour Act, has been amended many times. The major provisions of the FLSA are concerned with minimum wage rates and overtime payments, child labor, and equal rights. The US Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, oversees federal labor laws. Additionally, State DOLs administer state labor laws. Failure to comply with Wage and Hour laws may result in the employer paying the employee back wages, damages, penalties, attorney fees and court costs, plus the prospect of civil and criminal penalties from federal and/or state governments. Therefore, Wage and Hour compliance is of the utmost importance.
