As discussed last week in this blog, Michigan employers are tasked with complying with a number of employment laws in the workplace. These laws change frequently, making it imperative that employers keep up to date in order to understand the requirements placed upon them.
A perfect example of this is the new employment law discussed in last week's blog post, the new federal overtime rule. The new rule, which was set to go into effect on December 1st, would have raised the salary threshold at which an employee could be considered exempt from overtime. In fact, the salary threshold would have doubled from the previous level.
