Last month, the Department of Labor issued a Request for Information (RFI) on the white-collar exemptions from the FLSA's minimum wage and overtime requirements.  The RFI asks the regulated community to respond to 11 questions, on topics ranging from the impact (or expected impact) of the enjoined 2016 salary increase to the need for revisions to the exemption’s duties tests to the possibility of different salary levels based on region or employer size.  Responses to the RFI are due on September 25, 2017.   

Join leaders from Seyfarth’s Wage & Hour Litigation Practice Group as they discuss the RFI, including:    

  • What the RFI contains . . . and what it doesn’t.
  • Whether and how employers should respond to the RFI. 
  • What the RFI may mean for the 2016 rulemaking, and how employers should plan accordingly. 
  • The interplay between the RFI, the DOL's rulemaking process, and the litigation and appeal regarding the enjoined 2016 rule revisions.
