Labor Department to change FLSA’s overtime exemptions?

According to Littler Mendelson employment lawyer Ilyse Schuman, word on the street in Washington is that the Labor Department will release a plan to overhaul the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime exemptions sometime “before November.”

President Obama in March ordered the department to propose rules that would make overtime pay available to more management employees. The current pay threshold is $455 per week—executive, administrative and professional employees earning more than that are now exempt from FLSA overtime provisions.

The overtime reboot is expected to become a major Democratic talking point in the run-up to November’s midterm congressional elections.
