The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals has established an employer-friendly standard for determining whether an intern should be considered an employee entitled to the minimum wage and overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in Glatt v. Fox Searchlight Pictures, Inc.
XpertHR has updated its content to reflect new regulations proposed by the US Department of Labor (DOL) that would raise the minimum salary for an employee exempt from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) from $455 per week to an estimated $970 per week.
In addition to setting a minimum wage rate, the ordinance also establishes notice-posting requirements, new hire paperwork requirements and retaliation protections for employees who engage in protected activities.
