FLSA Overtime Rule

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published monumental changes to the overtime rule that will make approximately 4.2 million currently exempt employees eligible for overtime pay later this year.

All employers will have to comply with the changes made to the overtime regulations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by Dec. 1, 2016. See more at the SHRM Legislative Page where you can find information about what the change means for your organization and actions HR Professionals should take to comply.
