Wage Hour

The USDOL has published final regulations redefining the criteria necessary to qualify as an exempt employee under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

On July 1, 2024, the salary threshold will increase from $35,568 to $43,888 per year (i.e. $684 to $844 per week).  On January 1, 2025, the salary level will increase yet again to $58,656 ($1,128 per week).  Thereafter, the salary level is set to automatically increase every 3 years.  The highly compensated employee exemption salary threshold will also be increasing from the current $107,432 to $151,164 by 2025.

The DOL estimates that one million workers will gain access to overtime nationwide in the first year alone, and as many as 3 million workers will be impacted by the subsequent application of the new salary level.
