JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?
Customer: with regard to the Final Rule Legislation
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: We are trying to get our heads around the aboveOur situation is as follows1. We have a few salaried employees
earning less than $39,884 ( the level set for American Samoa )2. One is our Office Manager, the others are Construction Supervisors3. All direct / supervise the work of two or more employees4. They do not have the sole authority to hire and fire5. All are provided with a company vehicle and petrol / maintenance paid for which is over and above their salary. If we were put a monetary value on this , say, 10k per annum, all would have salary packages of over $39884 – I don’t know if this has any impact6. None have professional qualifications in their field of work ie they would not appear to come into the “white collar” category as mentioned on the DOL websiteWould you please advise if these salaried employees are required to have their salaries increased to $39,884 or have overtime
paid for all hours worked over 40 in any one week should their salary remain below $38,884Your prompt response would be appreciated
Thanks in anticipation
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: just that the legislation will have the same effect in American Samoa as in USA
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
