New rule extends overtime to 4.2 million workers

You Have Rights As A Worker. I Will Help Protect Them.
The Kaufman Law FirmMay 27, 2016Wage & Hour Law

Overtime is a type of pay that you are entitled to when you work more than full time. There are many rules, but, in general, you are entitled to it when you work more than 40 hours a week. If you work more than these hours, then you are entitled to “time and a half” for each hour worked over the threshold. Generally, salaried workers are exempt from overtime rules. The effect is that many low-paid “white-collar” workers like administrators work more than 40 hours a week but do not receive overtime.

The Department of Labor issued a new rule that expanded the number of eligible workers eligible for overtime. The new rule expands overtime guarantees to white collar workers. It covers anyone working in an administrative, professional or executive capacity that is salaried makes less than $913 per week (or $47,476 for a full-year worker). The effect is to increase benefits for 4.2 million more workers. It helps workers from all education levels, ethnic groups and families.

The final rule will not be effective for a few more months. However, you can expect the benefits to eventually kick in. If you believe that your employer is denying you overtime that you deserve, then you may want to contact Unpaid Overtime Attorney to review your legal options. The rules for overtime are clearly laid out by the Department of Labor. Your employer has plenty of opportunities to comply with the rules. Don’t accept any excuses. It is your money and you earned it fair and square. It is up to your employer to comply with the rules.
