Employment Law Newsletter: They’re Here (Are You Ready?)—The New FLSA Regulations


Tuesday, August 10, 2004

Wyrick Robbins employment lawyers, L. Diane Tindall and Mary M. Williams have released the latest issue of The Resource: A Legal Newsletter for Employers & Human Resource Professionals.

An excerpt:

The new Regulations increase the threshold salary levels for exempt white collar workers, provide a new exemption for highly-compensated employees, set out permitted deductions from exempt employees’ salaries, provide a “safe harbor” for improper deductions and streamline the “duties tests” for executive, administrative and professional exempt employees, eliminating the old “short” and “long” tests.
