Survey on Overtime and Exemption Changes

Survey Brief


This report summarizes the results of a WorldatWork member survey on the final Department of Labor (DOL) rules relating to Section 541 of the regulations. Also known as the “white collar” or exemption tests, the final rules relate directly to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA).

Survey Results

Introduction and Methodology

The results indicate that the majority of respondents interact with the rules fairly regularly: about half of all respondents (49 percent) indicated that they deal with the FLSA overtime rules at least monthly or more often (combined “monthly,” “weekly” and “daily”), while 13 percent said their interaction “varies.” A combined 38 percent reported working with the overtime rules every couple of months or less.
