In June 2015, the United States Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division (DOL) issued a proposed rule that would update and revise overtime regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). According to the proposed regulation, it is designed to update the salary level to ensure that the FLSAâ€™s intended overtime protections are fully implemented, and to simplify the identification of nonexempt employees, in order to make the exemptions easier for employers and employees to understand.
Federal law requires all U.S. employers to ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. Both employees and employers must complete their respective sections of the form.
It is another Monday morning at work. The weekend was over too soon (again). Someone you've never seen before walks into your office, hands you a piece of paper and asks to see your I-9 forms. What do you do?
