Exempt vs Non-exempt: FLSA Final Rule Announced

If you’re like many employers, you’ve been following the developments about the DOL’s long-anticipated final rule regarding overtime eligibility. The law is critical to correctly classifying exempt and non-exempt employees, and many employers have been left in a holding pattern since updates were first suggested in 2016.

The Ins and Outs of Vacation for Exempt Employees

Summer is here and that means employees are making vacation plans. While your hourly employees,  non-exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), don’t get paid for hours they don’t work, it’s a little more complicated for exempt employees. What happens if they don’t have enough paid time off banked to cover their vacation? What if someone wants to take a half day off the last day before they leave for a trip? Do you have to pay your salaried employees even though your office will be closed on July 4? It’s enough to tempt you to extend your own vacation indefinitely!

Can You Afford to Misclassify Your Workers?

 

It’s Monday morning: Employees make their way to their workstations, the Keurig whirrs in the break room and the office starts to hum along as usual. Then, an employee approaches you and says that he’s done some research and discovered that his exempt job has been misclassified, and he’s actually nonexempt. What? No one has ever questioned their job status before, and your company’s job titles and descriptions are all in order. Is this employee correct? Are there others?  How is a misclassification fixed? Or do you need to do anything about it? If he’s right, does the company owe him money? Are there tax penalties?

It’s going to be a long week.
