  • In April of this year, the United States Department of Labor ("DOL") issued regulations establishing new standards for the so-called "white collar" exemptions contained in the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"). These new regulations, which are scheduled to go into effect on August 23, 2004, contain revised and, in some instances, somewhat more lenient tests for determining whether executive, administrative, professional, outside sales, and computer professional employees are exempt from the overtime and minimum wage rules of the FLSA.
