Avoid An FLSA Lawsuit

– Avoid a “Fair Labor Standards Act” (FLSA) Lawsuit

The Department of Labor issued its Final Rule updating the regulations governing white collar exemptions from the minimum wage and overtime pay protections of the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act). This rule went into effect on December 1, 2016, so if you’re not completely solid on what this means, please click here. Future automatic updates to these thresholds will occur every three years, beginning on January 1, 2020.

This is also a good time to:

  • Update Your Employee Handbook
  • Display Federal Posters
  • Review Recordkeeping Practices
  • Determine if Your Overtime Rate is Accurate
  • Consider Misclassification
  • Consider Deductions
