Topic:

Proposed PA Overtime Salary Threshold Increases: How Can Employers Prepare?

Key Takeaways:

The  In response to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf's call to "modernize" Pennsylvania's overtime rules, on June 23, 2018, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and industry proposed rulemaking to update the decades-old regulations applicable to three classes of overtime-exempt employees under the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act (PMWA): executive, administrative, and professional (EAP). The proposal includes, among other changes, an increase in the salary thresholds to qualify for the EAP exemptions. The proposed weekly salary thresholds rise over three years (from $610 to $766 to $921), and would substantially exceed those currently set by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) ($455).

This presentation will review:

  • The specifics of the proposed regulatory changes.
  • How employers In Pennsylvania will be impacted should the changes become law.
  • What employers should do to prepare for potential changes.
  • How Governor Wolf's proposal is part of a broader effort to broaden wage and hour protections at a state and local level via the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and applicable state laws governing wages and  pay practices.
