DOL Sets New Standard Salary Level for Overtime

On September 24, 2019, the United States Department of Labor (DOL) raised the standard salary level threshold for full-time workers from $455 to $684 per week. This means that employees making less than $35,568 per year will be eligible for overtime. Additional areas impacted by the DOL ruling are listed below:

All changes are effective January 1, 2020. Between now and then, employers should determine if employee reclassifications are necessary or if salary levels should be adjusted for exempt employees.
