In December of 2017, the Obama administration tried to change the requirements for claiming an employee was exempt from being paid overtime. That was challenged in court and was never implemented. It did, however, raise the awareness that the Fair Labor Standards Act was in need of revision. Thus the Trump Administration Department of Labor has been soliciting comments from the public on what recommendations should be instituted. Although an exact wage level has not been set as of January 2019, Secretary of Labor, Alex Acosta, has announced that changes will be made in the FLSA, perhaps as early as March 2019. Employers need to be prepared to institute changes.
