Update to FLSA Overtime Ruling

Update to FLSA Overtime RulingLast year, a federal District Court in Texas temporarily blocked the 2016 changes to the Federal Labor Standard Act’s (FLSA) overtime rule from taking effect, pending further review. The blocked overtime rule, which would have applied to the executive, administrative and professional exemptions to the FLSA’s overtime requirements, was previously scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2016.

On August 31, 2017, the Court issued a final decision, which struck down the previously stated changes to the FLSA overtime rule.

The rule, in its original state, would have nearly doubled the current salary threshold from $23,360 to $47,476, meaning a significant increase in all workers eligible for mandatory overtime pay. Estimates put this change equal to nearly 5 million currently exempt employees eligible nationwide.

On August 31, U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant in the Eastern District of Texas said the salary level was set so high that it could sweep in some management workers who are supposed to be exempt from overtime protections, according to Reuters.

The Court’s ruling provides clarity and relief to employers everywhere.  But employers still need to remain vigilant in supervising their employees’ overtime activity.  Employers must continue to evaluate the FLSA status of their employees by reviewing job descriptions to ensure their employees are classified properly.

EEO-1 Report Blocked by White House

In 2016, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) adopted the requirement to oblige U.S. employers to report detailed pay data broken down by gender and race.  They advised that the information was necessary to identify and address discriminatory wage gaps.  Form EEO-1 was put into effect with this ruling, and employers would have been required to begin reporting this information in March 2018.

But at the close of August, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) announced it has blocked this rule, resonating with business groups who have argued it would not clearly address wage gaps, further citing the fact that the rule was burdensome to companies and could lead to confidentiality breaches.

InfinityHR is committed to keeping its clients informed of regulatory changes.  Here’s what you need to know right now:

  • The previously approved EEO-1 form which collects data on race, ethnicity and gender by occupational category will remain in effect. Employers with at least 100 employees (and certain smaller federal contractors) will still need to comply with the earlier approved EEO-1 (Component 1) by the previously set filing date of March 2018.
  • The U.S. Government is initiating a review and immediate stay of the effectiveness of the pay data collection aspects of the EEO-1 form
  • InfinityHR is fully configurable to allow clients to meet this filing requirement.

Happy National Payroll Week!

National Payroll Week – September 4th through 8th, 2017

National Payroll Week celebrates America’s 150 million hard-working wage earners and the payroll professionals who pay them.  Founded by The American Payroll Association in 1996, it has quickly become an important remembrance over the Labor Day holiday.

National Payroll Week coincides with the celebration of Labor Day for a reason, as it’s a holiday celebrating the economic, cultural, and social achievements of workers and the significance of “an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.”

InfinityHR celebrates its clients, and employees, who exemplify this ‘honest day’s work’ mantra.

Keep Calm and Thank Payroll Team

Did you know that National Payroll Week also has its own official song? It’s quite catchy – check it out here!
