U.S. Department of Labor schedules two additional webinars on the
Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime final rule
On September 25, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) published a final rule to make 1.3 million American workers newly eligible for overtime pay.
The final rule updates the earnings thresholds necessary to exempt executive,
administrative and professional employees from the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA)
minimum wage and overtime pay requirements, and allows employers to count a portion
of certain bonuses and commissions towards meeting the salary level. The new thresholds account for growth in employee earnings since the thresholds were last updated in 2004.
