Higher Exempt Salary Levels Or Not. Where Do We Go From Here?

“The Wheel is come full circle . . . .” – Spoken by Edmund, “King Lear,” Act 5, Scene 3.

“I wish he would explain his explanation.”  Lord Byron, “Don Juan.”

OK, so the Department of Labor said they were raising the salary level for exempt employees sometime in 2015.  Then they said they didn’t know when it was going to be.  Then they said December 1, 2016.  They said the new number was $970 per week.  Then they said it was $927. Then they said it was another number and they didn’t know what it was.  Then they said it was $913. Now, at just about midnight, a Texas judge issues a preliminary injunction that prevents the rule from becoming effective on December 1st.  So all of the work, preparation, sweat and tears that management has put into getting ready for change is for naught, at least for the time being.  This is especially true for non-profit organizations and small businesses.

Jan. 31 Fingerprinting Deadline for Massage Establishments
By the FCA News   
Tuesday, 27 January 2015

The Department of Health, Board of Massage has recently sent out another letter advising the current owners of Massage Establishment Licenses that they must be fingerprinted or will be subject to a fine. If you have had a Massage Establishment license, you must either get fingerprinted (unless you had a background check and were fingerprinted after January 1, 2013) or formally surrender the license, if you are exempt from maintaining it.

If you have received the Enforcement Letter, do NOT ignore the letter. Either keep the establishment license, get fingerprinted and update your license or formally surrender your Massage Establishment License.  The Enforcement letter has a provision at the end for relinquishing the license formally.  Following are answers to most frequently asked questions and appropriate links and numbers to help you take action.
