As described in our previous blog post last week, on June 30, 2015 the U.S. Department of Labor finally released its highly anticipated proposed regulations to amend 29 CFR Part 541, the Fair Labor Standards Act’s “white collar” exemptions.  Today, those proposed regulations were published in the Federal Register, marking the beginning of the sixty day comment period for employers and other regulated entities to provide their input on the proposal.  The comment period will close on September 4, 2015.  Following review of the comments, the DOL will publish a “final rule” that may differ from the proposal published today.
