Here’s what you should know

The Department of Labor under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has released new regulations regarding overtime compensation set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. Management, administrative and professional employees earning up to $47,476 must be paid overtime at a rate of one-half for all hours over 40 worked each week. All businesses need to comply regardless of size, location or entity type. Only a few industries are exempt.
