DOL Proposes Changes to Overtime Exemption Regulation.  In June, the U.S. Department of Labor proposed changes to the overtime exemption regulation for Administrative, Executive, Professional, and Highly Compensated occupations.  The proposal is significant in that for the Administrative, Exeuctive, and Professional exemption tests the salary tests are proposed to double from the level set in 2004.  DOL also proposes to annually increase the salary thresholds to keep pace with inflation.  While DOL did not make proposed changes to the "duties tests" for the various exemptions, they seek public comment and could change the duties tests in the final regulation.  For complete analysis and proposed comment ideas from PIA see  PIA will have final comment ideas for members to use by August 15.
