OMA Connections Partner, Frantz Ward, reported that the White House this week released a new rule that could make more than four million Americans eligible for overtime pay.
According to its post, Frantz Ward wrote: “The rule will become effective in December, and will do the following:
“Although the changes in the new rule are significant, many employers will be very relieved to learn that the White House decided not to make changes to the duties tests for the white collar exemptions at this time. Some observers, however, believe that changes to the duties tests are inevitable, and that the timing of those changes will depend largely on the outcome of the election in November.”
A copy of the new rule, along with a summary from the White House of the basis for the rule, can be found here.
To help employers understand what actions they should take to prepare for the December effective date of the new rule, OMA and Frantz Ward will offer a webinar on June 29. Watch your inbox in the coming weeks for details.
