  • Working for a buck? Federal

    I have a somewhat serious and somewhat not so serious question about the big 3 auto companies' CEOs agreeing to work for a buck in order to accept congressional funding (after being asked during the last session). How will that work and isn't it going against the FLSA?

    Yes, it will be illegal. The employees (including CEOs) would have to get paid minimum wage if non-exempt or $455/week if exempt.

    I am not sure who one would get to enforce it however. I suspect that they would get laughed out of any DOL office.

    Besides, I also suspect that if one reads the fine print, these poor folks will get some type of non-wage compensation worth several million dollars annually in addition to their one dollar salary.
