Overtime-Exempt Threshold Set to Increase in December

June 29th, 2016

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently finalized a proposal that would raise the minimum salary threshold for overtime-exempt workers. Currently, under the Fair Labor Standards Act, employees earning more than $23,660 annually are exempt from overtime protection. The DOL’s proposal would increase that threshold to $47,476 annually. Several senators have introduced legislation that would block the change from taking place; however, as of now, it is set to be implemented on December 1, 2016.

The Department of Labor has advised employers of several options to ensure compliance with the new threshold, including paying employees time-and-a-half for overtime work, raising salaries to exemption levels, or limiting employees to 40 hours of work per week.

Employers who fail to comply with federal laws regarding overtime pay could face severe penalties. If you believe your employer has not properly paid you for overtime work, Philadelphia employment lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. will review your case at no charge to determine your best course of legal action. You may be entitled to significant compensation including unpaid wages and back pay.
