An employee comes to you and says, “I keep hearing all this talk about employees being exempt or non-exempt and about possible changes. What am I? What is the difference? And how will the possible changes affect me?” Are you prepared to answer these questions in a way that is easily understandable by the employee, since they don’t typically speak fluent HR/payroll? Perhaps more critically, are you 100% confident you are classifying employees correctly to begin with?
Our HR theme for April will provide insight and guidance in this area: Classifying and Paying Exempt Employees. There's a great deal of chatter about the Department of Labor's proposed changes to the salary threshold for white-collar exemptions. Be on the lookout for our April blog posts to learn about updates and explanations. Better yet, subscribe to our blog, and you'll receive a once-per-week email with all the information right in your inbox. We also encourage you to sign-up for our free webinar this month to help answer your questions:
