The US Department of Labor has changed the salary level that an employee must earn in order to be considered exempt from being paid overtime. Although this was effective on January 1, 2020, if companies have not made this change they are accruing potential penalties until such time as the change is made and employees are correctly classified. If an employee is not eligible to be considered exempt then every time they work over 40 hours in a week the payroll is increasing. However, claiming an employee is exempt just because you pay them a salary is not the solution. You must also make sure they pass the “duties” test. You must also be certain you are not making improper deductions, which could ruin your exemption, for that employee and all others in similar jobs.
The Department of Labor changed the requirements for exempting someone from receiving overtime effective January 1, 2020. If you have not made these corrections NOW is the time to do so.
