Professional Service Agreement


June 20, 2024

As you are aware, The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued a Final Rule raising significantly the minimum salary level requirements for positions to meet the requirements of the FLSA’s “White Collar” Exemptions. The rule is to take effect on July 1, 2024.

Subsequent to this new rule, lawsuits were filed in The Easter District of Texas challenging the new salary levels.

Please note that a hearing has been scheduled on Monday, June 24 to hear the Plaintiff’s Motion for Injunctive Relief preventing the DOL from implementing the rule. This hearing is scheduled just six (6) days before the first salary increase is set to become effective on July 1st.

As a decision on the rule is expected prior to the 1st increase requirement on July 1st, clients planning an increase to the guaranteed salary level of $43,888.00 should hold off pending the outcome.

SESCO will closely monitor the status of the cases and immediately notify clients of the outcome.
