Department of labor Solicitor General Claims That New FLSA Rules Might Not Be Implemented Until Late 2016
In a recent Aba Conference in Philadelphia, the U . s . States Department of Labor’s Solicitor General announced the much-anticipated new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) rules may likely ‘t be implemented until late 2016. The Solicitor General noted the suggested FLSA rules had generated around 270,000 comments which development, combined with the complexity of applying the rules, would take substantial time. As described at length inside a recent article within the Fast Laner, these suggested FLSA rules, amongst other things, substantially boost the minimum salary an worker must earn to be eligible for a an overtime exemption, leading to potentially countless new employees becoming qualified for overtime pay. These rules have been likely to be implemented, in the latest, at the begining of 2016. The delay is nice news for employers because it can give them more hours to organize for his or her eventual implementation.
