Dems introduce bills to raise salary minimum for overtime exemption

On June 11, 2019, members of the House and Senate introduced companion bills to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The bill, called Restoring Overtime Pay Act of 2019, would raise the minimum salary threshold for exempt executive, administrative and professional (EAP) employees to north of $50,000 and automatically update the threshold every three years.

The Restoring Overtime Pay Act of 2019 would legislate the minimum salary for exemption under the EAP exemptions for the first time in U.S. history. 

This law would fix the salary threshold at a level equal to the 40th percentile of earnings of full-time salaried workers in the lowest-wage census region.
