Barring any last-minute Court intervention as occurred after the DOL’s May 2016 Final Rule was released, this will impact all employers in all states, including Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan, which apply the same salary-level test as the FLSA. The Final Rule only changes the salary-level test for exempt employees, leaving the job duties test unaffected. However, with the release of the Final Rule, it is a good time for employers to review not only the salary level of its exempt employees, but also to conduct a job duties test review. This may be especially helpful in regard to a company’s decision-making in converting certain employees to a non-exempt employee.
