New FLSA Overtime Exemption Regulations Still Under Consideration By Department of Labor

Topics: New Laws & Legislation, Wage & Hour Issues

Earlier this week, Secretary of Labor Perez announced that her agency is still working hard on revising the regulations governing the existing white collar overtime exemptions.  These regulations were originally expected to be published in early 2015.  However, that did not happen.  Secretary Perez now expects that the regulations will be finalized and published this spring. 

Because the California white collar overtime exemptions, which govern most private sector employers in California, are much more narrowly drawn than those under the FLSA, we do not expect these regulation changes to have a major effect on private sector employers in the state.  However, public employers in California are generally governed only by federal wage and hour law when it comes to overtime, so these new regulations will likely require public employers in California to take a serious look at their exempt/non-exempt classifications.

We will continue to keep you updated on the development of these regulations and certainly post a new blog entry when they are actually published.
