Federal agencies have issued three important sets of new rules and regulations affecting employers.

The Wage and Hour Division published final rules changing the threshold for salaried exempt status to become effective December 1, 2016.

OSHA published final rules on electronic collection and public reporting of injury data.

And EEOC published two final rules to provide guidance on the extent to which employers may use incentives to encourage employees to participate in wellness programs.

The Rudman Winchell Employment team will explain these changes and discuss how to comply with the new rules.

 

The conversation on the new salaried exemption threshold will include:

  • What are an employer’s choices?
  • Can bonuses and commissions be applied to meet the new level?
  • Is the new threshold a moving target?
  • What are the issues when an exempt worker becomes non-exempt?
  • How are public employers and nonprofits affected?

 

The OSHA discussion will include:

  • New submission requirements
  • When they go into effect for different employers
  • -retaliation requirements

 

The wellness program discussion will include:

  • How a wellness program can comply with the ADA
  • Complying with GINA in wellness programs
