Is your city ready for the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) changes anticipated to take effect in January 2020?

This spring, the Department of Labor announced a proposal to raise the minimum salary requirements for an employee to be exempt from overtime pay—from $455/week ($23,660/year) to $679/week ($35,308/year). The prior rule with the $455/threshold has been in place since 2004. The proposed rule was subject to a period of public comment (60-day period) and is anticipated to take effect in January 2020.

With these new proposed salary levels, cities will either have to increase exempt employees’ wages (if those wages fall below the new baseline) or those employees will be classified as non-exempt—and therefore eligible for overtime pay.

Join us for this free webinar to:

  • Receive an overview of the current FLSA—including exempt vs. non-exempt employees and the important salary basis and duties tests (which determines how an employee is correctly classified)
  • Discuss how the features of the proposed FLSA rule may impact your city, employees’ statuses, and their salaries
  • Receive tips about how you can prepare your city for the upcoming changes
  • Ask questions about the FLSA and these proposed changes (please submit them in advance to lmcwebinar@lmc.org)
