While many employers including non-profits are breathing a sigh of relief that FLSA changes will not have to be implemented for December 1, there may be more state DOL concerns to consider before the year is out. By now every non-profit knows the new federal FLSA overtime rules will not go into effect on December 1, 2016. The much discussed federal blockage of the FLSA overtime rule may not be the reprieve non-profits expect. Non-profits still need to comply with state regulations.
Before the federal FLSA overtime rule was struck down by a United States District Court in Texas on November 22nd, it was easier for non-profits to neglect consideration of state requirements because they were superseded by the federal FLSA ruling.
