On November 22, 2016, a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction staying implementation of the new overtime regulation. The new regulation is on hold for now and it will not go into effect on December 1. No word yet on a potential appeal of the injunction.

The changes to the the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that were scheduled to become effective on December 1, 2016 are as follows:

  1. The salary threshold for an exempt employee, i.e., an employee exempt from overtime payments, is raised from $455 per week, or $23,660 per year. The new salary threshold for an exempt employee is $913 per week, or $47, 476 per year.
  2. Non-discretionary bonuses, incentive payments, and commissions, paid at least quarterly, can count for up to 10% of the standard salary threshold. (read more…)
