DOL Updates Regulations Under FLSA

Lindsay B Schwartz 

Recently, the Department of Labor (DOL) published updated regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The new regulations revise the overtime exemptions for executive, administrative and professional employees, commonly known as the “white collar” exemptions.

AHCA/NCAL's legal consultant at Jackson Lewis has provided a memo outlining the changes. The memo includes information on changes to the "White Collar" exemptions, compliance with the Final Rule, DOL's non-enforcement policy, and CMS compliance with the payroll based journal.

The memo can be found on both AHCA's and NCAL's websites. Members will need their login information to access the memo. AHCA/NCAL has also posted a Jackson Lewis webinar and slides with an overview of the rule.

The full text of the final rule can be found here. The new regulations take effect on Dec. 1, 2016.
