On July 24 the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published a request for public comment on potential changes to the previous administration’s overtime rule. The DOL is seeking input as to whether the current salary threshold of $23,660 should be updated for inflation, whether certain factors call for multiple standard salary thresholds and how employers prepared for the 2016 rule to take effect, including whether unique challenges existed for small businesses and non-profits. We will continue to the monitor this situation and will continue to update as new information becomes available. In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like to discuss wage and hour issues related to your business please feel free to contact us.
"As with many small businesses, mine was presenting with a hurdle where I needed someone's expert opinion and assistance. I did my research and found Alex. I read through some of the other recommendations and reviews I found and had a good feeling that Alex could help me in my situation. I called Alex and from the very beginning he was extremely helpful.
Alex was able to explain to me, in depth, more about the hurdle I was facing and provided me with several options to assist me in getting over it. We made a plan of action and were able to get past it, allowing me to focus more on my business. What I admired about Alex was his tenacity as well as his communication. He kept me well informed through every step, as each step was happening.
Alex has my highest recommendation and we'd certainly call him again if in need.'
