USDOL 2016 Updates/Changes

USDOL prepped for 2016 and will be rolling out some changes including:

Changes to Federal Overtime Exemptions

The USDOL intends to modify wage and hour regulations under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The amendments will double the salary ($23,660 to $50,000 per year) for certain “exemptions” from federal overtime requirements.

Secondly, USDOL intends to clamp down on misclassification of employees as independent contractors.
