How will the new FLSA rule effect your business?

The Department of Labor has announced the final rule for 2020 changes the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) effective January 1, 2020.

In the final rule, the Department is:

  • raising the "standard salary level" from the currently enforced level of $455 to $684 per week (equivalent to $35,568 per year for a full-year worker);
  • raising the total annual compensation level for "highly compensated employees (HCE)" from the currently enforced level of $100,000 to $107,432 per year;
  • allowing employers to use non-discretionary bonuses and incentive payments (including commissions) that are paid at least annually to satisfy up to 10 percent of the standard salary level, in recognition of evolving pay practices; and
  • revising the special salary levels for workers in U.S. territories and in the motion picture industry.

Missy Duke and Greg Northen will present on how to ensure you understand the changes and are ready for the new year.
