Dramatic Changes Ahead for Overtime Laws

On Thursday, President Obama will instruct the U.S. Department of Labor to revise its overtime regulations implementing the Fair Labor Standards Act. The President’s plan will force employers to pay more overtime to millions of workers previously exempt under the “white collar” exemptions. The plan would make this change by increasing the salary threshold for exempt employees, currently at $455 per week. Additionally, the President will attempt to change the “primary” duty rules that define workers’ exemptions. The public will be allowed to comment on any proposed changes to the regulations, which may help scale-down the President’s proposal.
