Employers should already be planning for compliance—are you?

The Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)1 that will dramatically increase the number of employees who must be paid on an hourly basis. If the regulations are finalized in the summer of 2016 as expected, employers will have 60–90 days to comply. This is a narrow window given the organizational impacts and the decisions that will need to be made, which can stretch beyond HR to IT, finance, and operations. Now is the time to evaluate the potential effects of the changes and plan your compliance strategy.
