In September of 2019, The U.S. Department of Labor announced the final overtime rule that will make 1.3 million workers newly eligible for overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
It requires that exempt employees earning $684 per week or $35,568 per year (or less) now qualify for overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours in a week. It also raises the minimum salary for highly compensated employees.
The final rule is effective January 1, 2020.
