160,000 Ohioans Would Get Overtime with Obama Administration Proposal
Victor Geraci was quoted on Cleveland.com on June 16, 2015. The article “160,000 Ohioans Would Get Overtime with Obama Administration Proposal” discussed how about 160,000 Ohio workers would be eligible for overtime pay through an Obama Administration proposal aimed at raising the wages of lower-wage salaried workers, such as fast-food restaurant managers.
Victor said the proposed ruling could potentially "open the floodgates to wage and hour litigation" over which workers are eligible to receive overtime. He said employers need to know how the proposal would impact their businesses.
"(S)crambling at the last minute to find a pay plan for employees who are no longer exempt from overtime pay would be a recipe for disaster," Victor wrote in an email.
