The U.S. Department of Labor raised the minimum salary threshold required to qualify for the Fair Labor Standards Act’s “white-collar” exemption to $47,476 per year, effective December 1, 2016. Under the current rule, management, administrative and professional employees who currently earn a salary of more than $23,660 per year are exempt from receiving overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours a week. The rule will impact an estimated 4.2 million salaried workers.
