NADA writes against proposed overtime exemption threshold

September 11, 2015
The National Automobile Dealers Association on Sept. 4 filed comments with the U.S. Labor Department in opposition to proposed changes to the federal "white collar" overtime exemptions. The changes are designed to significantly reduce the number of exempt employees. 
The exemptions involve both a salary test and a job duties test. The proposal would increase the salary test for executive, administrative, and professional employees from the current $455 a week ($23,660 annually) to $950 a week ($50,440 annually) and would build in annual and automatic adjustments. 
The NADA opposes both the proposed salary threshold increase and the proposed annual automatic adjustment concept. The Labor Department expects to issue a final rule sometime next year.
