The federal minimum salary threshold for “executive,” “administrative,” and “professional,” (EAP) employees increases as of January 1, 2020 - from $455 per week ($23,660 per year) to $684 per week ($35,568 per year) - to qualify as exempt from overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The changes will have a significant impact on the hospitality industry.
