Most Recently Released DOL Opinion Letters Address Varying Average Hourly Rate and Ministerial Exception

True to its promise last year, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (the “WHD”) continues to issue a steady stream of opinion letters designed to offer practical guidance to employers on specific wage and hour issues solicited by employers. This past week, the WHD issued two new opinion letters concerning the Fair Labor and Standards Act (“FLSA”), where one addresses an employer’s hourly pay methodology vis-à-vis the FLSA’s minimum wage requirement, and the other the ministerial exception to the FLSA.

Airspace leases: property out of thin air

It is the desire of almost every property investor to make their assets “sweat” by maximising the income available from them. One way investors achieve this is by granting leases of the airspace above their properties. Investors may, for example, lease the airspace to a developer who can help them improve the density of their building by adding a floor or more. Alternatively, the investor may lease the airspace to a tenant who will install telecommunications equipment or solar panels on the roof. This article presents the questions an investor has to ask before embarking on this route, as it is littered with potential issues.

Aanbestedingsrecht en de Nota van Inlichtingen, hoe zat het ook al weer?

Iedereen die wel eens aan een aanbestedingsprocedure heeft meegedaan, kent hem wel: de Nota van Inlichtingen. Meer een resultaat van waar het eigenlijk om gaat: de mogelijkheid om vragen te stellen. Dat is natuurlijk bedoeld om onduidelijkheden te voorkomen. Naast het feit dat individuele inschrijvers daarmee vragen beantwoord krijgen over onderdelen van de opdracht (of de aanbestedingsprocedure), zorgt het verspreiden van de Nota van Inlichtingen er voor dat alle inschrijvers ook dezelfde – verdiepende – informatie hebben over die opdracht of procedure.
