Proposed Change to Overtime Threshold, Take 2
On March 7, 2019, the Department of Labor announced its Notice of Proposed Rule Making to increase the “white collar” overtime exemption threshold from $23,660/year to $35,308/year (or $679/week). https://www.dol.gov/newsroom/releases/osec/osec20190307
This increase is projected to impact more than one million Americans, making them eligible for overtime compensation for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. Once the rule is published in the Federal Register, there will be a 60-day public comment period.
