Court Blocks Start For New Overtime Rules

Court Blocks Start For New Overtime Rules

On November 22, 2016, a judge in a U.S. District Court temporarily blocked the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) overtime rules set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. In an article titled, “Court Blocks Dec. 1 Start For OT Rules”, Sushma Tripathi, ADP’s vice president for workforce planning and benefits consulting, advises companies to continue evaluating their employees’ status under the new rule despite the injunction. “The FSLA (Fair Labor Standards Act) is complex to begin with, so while the rule is delayed, employers should still continue to evaluate the status of their employees by reviewing their jobs’ duties and descriptions and making sure they have employees classified correctly,” said Tripathi.

Payroll: The Accountant’s Key to Unlocking Stronger Client Relationships

By Chris Rush, Division Vice President of Strategy and Business Development for ADP’s Small Business Services Division To many clients or small business owners, payroll can seem like yet another piece of an already complicated puzzle. Recent changes to federal, state and local laws on overtime rules, minimum wage and paid sick leave have made this task even more complicated, increasing the risk of noncompliance fines for employers.
