Although 2020 has just started, numerous changes and new interpretations have swept through the employment world and firms will be busy keeping their clients informed, in compliance, and protected from administrative and/or civil litigation. This course will focus on changes affecting the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and wage and hour compliance and litigation. Just prior to the start of 2020 the Department of Labor (DOL)increased the “standard salary level” threshold for white-collar exempt employees from $455 ($23,600 per year) to $684 per week ($35,568 per year). Another recent change was the DOL’s final rule updating its regulations regarding joint-employer status under the FLSA. Taking a look back, the course will also discuss what impact the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Encino Motorcars, LLC v. Navarro, 138 S. Ct. 1134 (2018) has had any may have for future cases. In closing, we will discuss common pitfalls employers continue to face and a case study involving classification of exempt outside sales employees.
