Straight from the Horse's Mouth: Final Changes to FLSA Are Moving Slowly


By: Marty Heller

So it turns out that the changes to the minimum salary level for exempt positions may not be changing as quickly as many thought. Linked here is a great article from HR Morning about comments made by Department of Labor Solicitor Patricia Smith at a recent American Bar Association conference. At the conference, Ms. Smith said that the DOL does not expect to issue a final rule until "late 2016," which for anyone who follows government deadlines likely means 2017. Prior to this comment, pundits repeatedly had surmised that the final rule would be issued in early 2016, likely January or February. The cause of the delay is unclear; however, it is possible that changes are being made to the proposed rule as a result of the record number of comments from employers during the comment period. As the article points out, it also is possible that this delay tactic has political purposes.
