Department of Labor Final Rule - Effective December 1, 2016
The Department of Labor's Final Rule increased the minimum salary for exempt "white collar" workers to $913 per week ($47,476 annually) as of 12/01/2016.
Although several lawsuits have been filed, as of today, the DOL Rule will go into effect as planned.
In May, we reported on this change and recommend that you read our article, How To Deal with the DOL Overtime Rule for Exempt Employees
Also, we recommend you review the Department of Labor FAQ section for additional information pertinent to your workers's compensation.
