Attention HR Professionals!

Please continue to be a leader for the profession in your state by visiting SHRM’s call to action to send an email to your members of Congress about this important workplace legislation and ask that they cosponsor the legislation. We encourage you to circulate SHRM’s alert within your respective networks as well.

Issue Background:
In the overtime rule proposal, DOL is considering raising the minimum salary threshold to $970 per week ($50,440 annually); an increase of 113%. DOL also proposes increasing this minimum salary on an annual basis by pegging it to the 40th percentile of weekly earnings for full-time salaried workers or by indexing it to inflation for urban goods and services. In addition, DOL proposes publishing these annual increases to the minimum salary only 60 days before they become effective—providing employers and employees with little notice.  

The dramatic increase in the proposed salary level will result in many professional employees being reclassified to non-exempt hourly employees, resulting in less workplace flexibility and forcing employees to closely track their hours. 

While DOL did not offer a specific proposal to modify the duties tests, the department suggested it is considering making some changes. The dramatic increase to the salary level proposed by DOL coupled with almost any changes to the duties test will create many challenges for employers and employees.

2016 will be our  3RD FEED NC FOOD DRIVE.  This is a statewide food drive benefiting our local communitiesCollections will begin May 1st and run through June 30th.  We’ve chosen this time of year because food banks are strained as children are out of school for the summer.


More than 50% children in NC depend on the school system for 2 meals a day.  In the summer families turn to their local food banks to help fill that gap or go children go without.

This is our opportunity to support our local food banks and in turn support the children and families of our communities.

NC SHRM is proud to sponsor FEED NC 2016.  Get your Chapter involved.

What will we accomplish in 2016?  We cannot wait to see.
