Using Data to Explore Employee Status Under FLSA
Elizabeth Arnold and Chester Hanvey
Elizabeth Arnold and Chester Hanvey write about the US Department of Labor’s (DOL) recent guidance on the application of the Fair Labor Standard Act’s administrative exemption, analysis of the different exemption factors, and clarification regarding the “discretion and independent judgment” and “matters of significance” components of the exemption. They also discuss how an analysis of employees’ exemption status based on the guidance from the DOL is valuable for many employers.
