The US Department of Labor has formally issued new regulations that will change the way the Fair Labor Standards Act will be applied starting January 1, 2020. Two of the most important changes are an increase in the minimum salary for “white-collar” employees and changes to the calculation of an employee’s overtime rate.
My colleague and good friend, Bill Maccarone, blogged about the changes today in FirefighterOvertime.org, and is planning a multi-part series to help firefighters understand how these changes may impact their paychecks. Bill has done the grunt work of identifying the changes, and analyzing the impacts – so I won’t repeat what Bill has already done – suffice it to say – visit Bill’s blog.
Bill, Attorney Brian Massatt and I will be covering these changes in our upcoming FLSA for Fire Departments conference February 11-13, 2020 in beautiful Stuart, Florida. Everything you need to know about the FLSA
