DOL Proposes Increase in Required Salary Threshold Amounts for FLSA Exemptions

On August 30, 2023, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that would significantly increase the salary threshold amounts required for the Fair Labor Standard’s Act’s (FLSA) white-collar exemptions. The DOL proposed an annual salary-level threshold to $55,068 from $35,568 for white-collar exemptions to minimum wage and overtime requirements. Join us to discuss the implications of this proposed rule on employers, anticipated litigation challenges once the rule is finalized, and what employers should be doing now.

Increase in DOJ Investigations into Unintentional Discrimination in External Job Postings

We will discuss the recent increase in U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) investigations of U.S. companies for discriminatory recruitment practices. These investigations stem from companies posting job advertisements that contain a citizenship status restriction. Since Summer 2022, DOJ has investigated over 47 companies for these violations and collected over $3.1 million in settlements. The settlements require companies to pay substantial civil penalties, undergo training, and change their recruiting practices. We will discuss tips and best practices to help employers avoid discriminatory recruitment practices that might lead to an investigation.


CLE Credit will be applied for, where applicable.
