Overtime Rule in NYC

New Jersey staffing firms and other employers breathed a sigh of relief when, in November 2016, a federal judge in Texas blocked the out-going administration's new overtime rule. That federal rule would have raised the exempt employee salary threshold for myriad white collar employees (such as certain recruiters and account managers) to $913.46 per week in 2017. However, in December 2016 the New York State Department of Labor issued regulations raising the State's own exempt employee minimum salary threshold to $825 per week for large NYC employers in 2017 - and increasing steadily each year thereafter. 

Overtime Exempt Salary Threshold (salary/week)
Effective Date NYC Other Counties
12/31/16 $825.00 $727.50
12/31/17 $975.00 $780.00
12/31/18 $1,125.00 $832.00

Affordable Care Act

House Republicans have introduced legislation to change the Affordable Care Act. Among other things, it gets rid of the employer mandate penalties for not providing insurance as well as the penalties for the individual mandate. It does keep some of the provisions regarding pre-existing conditions and allows adult children up to age 26 to remain on their parents' plan.
