U.S. Department of Labor Issues Final Overtime Rule

Posted By MNLA eNews, Tuesday, October 29, 2019

From Zlimen & McGuiness

This new rule does not change the fact that “Blue Collar Workers” cannot be paid on a salary basis and must be paid overtime. Workers who are non-management employees in production, maintenance, construction and similar occupations are entitled to minimum wage and overtime premium pay under the FLSA. This includes most green industry workers who are on site or in the field. The final overtime rule will be effective on January 1, 2020.



From U.S. Dept. of Labor

Due to demand, DOL Wage and Hour Division hosting additional webinars on overtime pay rule

Due to the overwhelming response received for the overtime final rule webinar on November 4 (it sold out in a half hour), the Wage and Hour Division has scheduled two additional webinars to provide compliance assistance on the final rule on:

  • Provisions of the final rule so that employers can comply with the changes and inform workers and their advocates of their rights
  • Specific changes that the final rule will make when it becomes effective on January 1, 2020
  • Detailed information about new materials and resources available on the overtime final rule website

Throughout the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to submit questions. Wage and Hour Division hosts will answer as many of those questions as possible following the presentation.

Register for the webinar on November 12, 2019 at 12 noon Central Time.

Register for the webinar on November 19, 2019 at 12 noon Central Time.

A recording of the webinar will be posted on the Wage and Hour Division’s overtime final rule website after the live presentation.

New Labor Standards and Wage Theft Law

Posted By MNLA eNews, Thursday, July 25, 2019

Minnesota recently enacted a new Wage Theft Law, which amends existing state labor laws and adds new wage and hour requirements, protections and sanctions. As of July 1, new requirements for all Minnesota employers include an employee notice requirement, plus additional information for already-required earnings statements and employer recordkeeping. Increased enforcement of state wage and hour laws and criminal penalties for employers that commit wage theft are also included in the new law. For more information, visit the Department of Labor and Industry Wage Theft Legislation 2019 and Summaries webpage at The linked page includes guidance for employers and employees, FAQs, a sample Employee Notice and other information. Additionally, here is a link to a webinar about this law, which the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry participated in with the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce:
