This simple presentation provides background as to the ideals behind the recent DOL overtime and salary basis changes.  Changes are effective in December of this year so employers need to look at their job descriptions, look at the hours worked, and engage in some analysis as to their business needs in order to remain complaint with the updated regulations.

 

From Hultman Sensenig + Joshi:  Reading this blog does not create an attorney client relationship nor is legal advice given in this blog.  The overtime issues are very serious for employers and we do suggest reviewing your policies and procedures to prepare for the upcoming changes – and enforcement efforts.  Let us know if we can help you.

Pay attention Florida employers, new minimum wage as of January 1, 2015

Florida employers covered by minimum wage and overtime will need to update their posters on January 1,2015.  Minimum wage in Florida will rise from $7.93 to $8.05, and tipped wages will increase from $4.91 to $5.03 per hour.  The Florida minimum wage is currently higher than the federal minimum wage (which we know the increase of is a priority for the current administration) so covered employers must post both the federal and the state minimum wage notices.

Be sure to print the free new poster providing the new minimum wage from the http://www.floridajobs.org site once the updated poster is published.  Failure to do so is risking the ire – and a fine – from the Department of Labor if they happen to drop by to see if you are correctly displaying the new poster.  Be sure your accounting department and payroll companies are aware of this change.  An early Happy New Year to you!
