DOL Overtime Changes Expected to Boost the Wages of Millions
The article, “DOL Overtime Changes Expected to Boost the Wages of Millions,” featured in Akron Legal News, reported on the U.S. Department of Labor’s new final rule, which will automatically extend overtime pay protections to over four million workers within the first year of implementation.
Rich Millisor weighed in on the new rule.
He said the changes that are scheduled to take effect on Dec. 1 could devastate many employers.
“These changes will likely impact most employers but especially nonprofits and the retail and food industries,” said Rich. “By virtue of the, in essence, arbitrary increase in the salary threshold, many employees who meet the duties requirement of the white-collar exemption will now qualify for overtime.”
