So, what is an employer to do? Jeff Ruzal, an attorney with Epstein Becker Green in New York City, counsels clients to prepare so that they are "well-positioned to make any changes that may be necessary if and when the new rule is implemented." He suggests conducting a self-audit to understand all the requirements of the DOL's white-collar exemption, which exempts executive, administrative and professional (EAP) employees from the Fair Labor Standards Act's (FLSA's) minimum wage and overtime pay requirements, and to ensure full compliance with them.
