On May 18th, the Department of Labor (DOL) finalized the proposed change to the salary requirements that apply to exempt white-collar employees. Under the new rule, the minimum salary increases from the previous $455 a week to $913 a week. If an employer fails to provide this minimum salary to an otherwise exempt employee, the employee will no longer be considered exempt and thus be eligible for overtime compensation.

An important compliance deadline is quickly approaching. For companies that terminated their group health plan and enrolled their employees in individual policies, the IRS has made it clear that employers could not directly pay employee’s individual premiums or reimburse employees for their individual premiums. The IRS considers such an arrangement to be an Employer Payment Plan and will begin imposing substantial fines for such an arrangement beginning July 1st. To avoid such fines, a company can provide any remuneration to their employees upon plan termination, if done so in the form of a fixed taxable healthcare stipend that is not predicated on the purchase of health insurance.

True Oil, LLC and its associated companies are at the center of an EEOC lawsuit claiming pay discrimination under the Equal Pay Act of 1963. The lawsuit claims that True Oil and 9 of its sister companies are liable for gender discrimination because men were paid more for the same work as women in the firms’ common accounting department.
