Haley Morrison Reviews Increased Salary Requirements for ACC Newsletter

July 5, 2016
Haley Morrison authored an article, "The DOL's Increased Salary Requirements for White Collar and Highly Compensated Workers," for the June 2016 newsletter published by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) of Oregon. In 2014, President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum directing the Department of Labor (DOL) to update the regulations for the so-called "White Collar Exemptions." In response, the DOL issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, asking for feedback. The DOL received more than 270,000 comments regarding its proposals. In her article, Haley discusses the resulting Final Rule, which is effective December 1, 2016.
