Exempt Employees: Ensure Accurate Classification and Compensation
No sooner did the Department of Labor release its final overtime rule, then COVID-19 hit. Employers didn't have time to fully grasp the new standard salary requirements, such as how to handle bonuses and commissions in light of the changes. Now, many employers are left with questions on how to classify their exempt employees.
The responsibility to review and implement the most recent regulations falls on your company.
