On February 17, 2016, Patricia Smith, U.S. Department of Labor solicitor, announced that the U.S. Department of Labor Final Rule regarding the Fair Labor Standards Act White Collar Exemption Regulations will be published sometime in July of this year. She added that such Regulations will take effect 60 days after their publication. Accordingly, we anticipate that such Regulations will be effective on employers no later than September 2016. As such, if not done so already, employers should accelerate their efforts to evaluate and confirm that they will be in compliance with the updated FLSA Regulations once they become final. For a summary of the updated Regulations, please click here to view my earlier blog posting.

If you need assistance preparing for the updated FLSA White Collar Exemption Regulations, please do not hesitate to contact E. Jason Tremblay at 312-876-6676 or your designated Arnstein & Lehr LLP attorney.
