3 Challenges to the New Rule Legislative Challenges House bill passed to delay effective date 6 months (June 1, 2017) Senate would need to approve Both houses would need 2/3 vote to override veto Legal Challenges 21 states filed in Texas for an injunction FLSA does state a salary threshold test DOL doesn t have authority to index salary threshold going forward Violates Tenth Amendment by setting rates that state government must pay Possible results Salary threshold has been in place since 1940 and has been updated several times Indexing impacts 2020, not 2017 Private employers not impacted by 10 th Amendment

4 Effective Date Thursday, December 1, 2016 Back up to start of payroll cycle prior to December 1 November 21, 2016 November 28, 2016 To be completed prior to effective date Pay adjustments made Employee communication Manager training Pay adjustments determined Employee classification determined

5 Fair Labor Standards Act Applies to Businesses or enterprises with at least $500k in annual sales All employers engaged in interstate commerce (regardless of annual sales) Requires OT after 40 hours worked unless exempted Exemption Tests Salary Basis Duties Test Salary Threshold Must pass all three tests

6 What is Changing Salary threshold test Raise the salary threshold from $23,660 to $47,476 a year from $455 to $913 a week Update the salary threshold every three years. 40 th Percentile of lowest income region in the US (currently the South) Threshold is projected to rise to more than $51,000 with the first update on January 1, 2020 Raise the highly compensated employee threshold from $100,000 to $134,004 Above which only a minimal showing is needed to demonstrate an employee is not eligible for overtime Allowing nondiscretionary bonuses and incentive payments to count toward up to 10 percent of the new salary level Effective 12/1/16

7 What is Changing Bonuses, Salary Catch-up Bonuses Employers may use nondiscretionary bonuses and incentive payments (including commissions) to satisfy up to 10% of the standard salary level amount (i.e. up to $91 of the $913 per week threshold). Payments must be paid on a quarterly or more frequent basis to count towards the salary level test.

8 What is Changing Bonuses, Salary Catch-up Bonuses Discretionary Bonuses Don t Count Discretionary bonuses made at employers sole discretion cannot be used to satisfy the salary level requirement. i.e. any bonus paid without prior contract, promise, or announcement, and not for a set amount will not count

9 What is Changing Bonuses, Salary Catch-up Catch-up If an employee does not earn enough of a qualifying bonus or incentive payment in a given quarter to meet the standard salary level, an employer may make a catch-up payment no later than the next pay period after the end of the quarter. Any such catch-up payment counts only toward the prior quarter s salary.
