Final Overtime Rule to Take Effect in December 2016

Final Overtime Rule to Take Effect in December 2016

Now that the final Overtime Rule has been announced, it is vital to understand how it will effect employers and workers. Since 2014, the Secretary of Labor has been working to update the overtime regulations to reflect the original intent of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The end goal is to provide better pay to middle class workers and to allow them more free time- creating a culture of work/ life balance

According to the United States Department of Labor, the final rule will accomplish the following:

  • Raise the salary threshold indicating eligibility from $455/week to $913¬†($47,476 per year), ensuring¬†protections to 4.2 million workers.
  • Automatically update the salary threshold every three years, based on wage growth over time, increasing predictability.
  • Strengthen overtime protections for salaried workers already entitled to overtime.
  • Provide greater clarity for workers and employers.

The final rule goes into effect on December 1, 2016. We are here to help you and your business prepare for these changes. Please contact us today to get started.
