The US Dept. of Labor Issues Final Rule that Will Increase the Minimum Salary Threshold

Effective January 1, 2020, employees must be paid $684/week (equating to $35,568/year) on a salary basis in order to qualify as an exempt employee under the FLSA white collar exemptions. 

The minimum salary threshold for the “highly compensated employee exemption” is also going up. Effective January 1, 2020, in order to take advantage of the “highly compensated employee exemption,” the employee will need to be paid a salary of at least $107,432/year.

Q: Do these changes affect NJ employees/employers?

A: Yes. New Jersey follows the FLSA.
