Effective December 1, the new overtime rule will raise the minimum salary threshold required for white-collar exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act to $913 per week, more than doubling the current threshold.

  3. Former employees turned competitors in Pennsylvania are hit with $4.5 million in punitive damages.

This situation can happen if the employer offers health insurance coverage that is inadequate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or if the business doesn’t offer coverage at all. Employers must either pay a penalty or file an appeal on the matter. Chris McMican, from Epstein Becker Green, has more.
