As all HR professionals are aware, the Department of Labor has made dramatic changes to the FLSA that are due to take effect on December 1, 2016. A part of these changes are rapid annual increases in the salary threshold required for an employee to be an exempt employee.
Recently, a bill was introduced in the House of Representatives called H.R. 5813, the Overtime Reform and Enhancement Act. The bill proposes a salary threshold of $35,984 beginning December 1, 2016, followed by more gradual annual increases.
To offer feedback or your support of H.R. 5813, please visit the SHRM Policy Action Center at advocacy.shrm.org.
