Employers, get ready for a busy summer!
Just when you are about to embark on your summer getaways, dreaming of sun and relaxation … you are probably going to have 60 days to make sure you are in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) changes. Well, if you don’t see the sun, the stress of these changes for employers will certainly keep you hot under the collar!
M. Patricia Smith, the Solicitor of Labor, has stated that the Department of Labor (DOL) is looking to publish its final overtime regulations in July 2016. She also stated that the regulations will be effective within 60 days of the date they are published in the Federal Register. That means you will have 60 days to bring your company into compliance with any changes the DOL makes to the current overtime regulations.
