  • Moving nonexempt employees out of exempt salary structure and changing benefit packages
  • Same job, different classification based on job location

Options for communicating results are:

  • Manager could be trained on communicating changes
  • All-employee meeting in which CEO or head of Human Resources discusses
  • Departmental meeting in which the head of function explains
  • One-one-meetings in which the employee and manager discuss

Communication messages:

  • "We looked all our jobs holistically to be sure pay is competitive."
  • "FLSA is an evolving area of the law, so we review our jobs periodically."
  • "Jobs are constantly changing and evolving as we grow, so we will continue to monitor both areas."
