FIGHTING FOR YOUR BUSINESS!
A fair Overtime Mandate:
The debate at the federal level over what salary amount constitutes overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has been determined.
Last week, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that employers are now required to pay overtime wages to employees who work more than 40 hours a week if their salary is $35,568 or lower.
Since 2004, that threshold was at $23,660. The final rule will be in effect on January 1, 2020.
The Chamber submitted formal comments to the U.S. Department of Labor in support of a fair increase. To read the Chamber’s comments please click:
