The final FLSA rules would have increased the minimum salary threshold from $455/week ($23,660/year) to $913/week ($47,476/year), effective December 1, 2016, doubling the threshold for the exemption from overtime pay. However, within two weeks of the effective date of the increase, a federal court in Texas issued a preliminary injunction, effectively putting the increase on hold. Thus, employers may continue to use the $455 per week threshold for now. Further, given the 2016 election results, it is questionable as to when and whether the threshold will increase.
