New Overtime Rules Go Into Effect December 1, 2016


The Department of Labor says new overtime rules will go into effect December 1, 2016.

Employees making less than $47,476 ($913 a week) will automatically qualify for overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours a week -- regardless of their job description or duties or management classification.  That is about double the threshold of $23,660 ($455 a week) in place now.  Among others, the hospitality and retail industries will be hit hard with this change.
