Paul DeCamp, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC office, was quoted in XpertHR, in “$47,476 Minimum Salary Struck Down, New Minimum of About $33,000 Expected,” by Michael Cardman.

Following is an excerpt:

This “clears the way for DOL to issue a revised regulation,” said Paul DeCamp, Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice in the Washington, D.C., office of Epstein Becker Green, and a former administrator of the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division.

“It would not surprise me to see an updated final rule with a salary level commensurate to the level [Labor Secretary Alex] Acosta has described,” DeCamp added. In his confirmation hearing earlier this year, Acosta said the minimum salary level should be “somewhere around $33,000” to account for the rate of inflation since 2004.
