FLSA Overtime Rules Chage December 1, 2016

Fair Labor Standards Act - Overtime Rules Update

As you may or may not have heard, the FLSA overtime rules are changing and go into effect December 1, 2016. Below is a basic overview of the new regulations. Basically, anyone making under $47,476.00 a year and is on salary, will now be subject to overtime pay.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published monumental changes to the overtime rule that will make approximately 4.2 million currently exempt employees eligible for overtime pay later this year.

Exempt employees, because of their rate of pay and type of work that they do, are not eligible for overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek. Nonexempt employees must be paid time and a half for any hours worked over 40 in a workweek.

All employers will have to comply with the changes made to the overtime regulations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by Dec. 1, 2016.
