Lindsay Schafer featured in “Overtime Game”

AZ Business Magazine

Lindsay Schafer comments on new Department of Labor updates to the overtime salary threshold for exempt employees. She discusses employees and positions that may be affected and what employers should do.

Below is an excerpt:

"The rule will most impact those line-level managers and assistant managers who, while filling a very important role, often do not make significantly more than the hourly employees they supervise," says Lindsay M. Schafer, an attorney at Quarles & Brady, "particularly now that the minimum wage has been increased in Arizona."


"Employers should note that the changes in these regulations, while disruptive, provide an excellent opportunity to investigate and resolve any lingering questions related to employee exemption status without raising a red flag," Schafer says.
