** UPDATE – November 22, 2016 – Federal Court Blocks New Overtime Rule**

On May 23, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor published its final regulations that could extend overtime protections to 5 million white collar workers. Although the DOL decided not to make changes to the duties test, to comply with these rules, employers will need to determine whether to provide salary increases or reclassify exempt employees earning less than the $47,476 minimum salary level for exemption.

To help you through this process, Littler has developed the tools you need to achieve this daunting task quickly and efficiently.
