Legal Alert: New Proposed Overtime Rule Would Make 1.1 Million More Employees Eligible For Overtime Pay http://www.wsh-law.com/post-detail.php?id=35851 On March 7, 2019, the Department of Labor announced a new proposed rule that would extend eligibility for overtime pay to approximately 1.1 million additional workers. The proposed rule would require overtime pay for all employees earning less than $35,308 per year. Employees who earn more than this threshold amount can still qualify for overtime exemptions if their job duties primarily involve executive, administrative, or professional functions, often called the “white-collar” exemptions. Unless exempt, employees covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act must receive at least one and one-half times their regular hourly pay rate for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek.
