DOL: Company failed to include everything in overtime calculation

The U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division has obtained $165,379 in back wages and damages from a regional health care management company on behalf of 594 workers whose overtime rates were improperly calculated.

21 states and the US Chamber of Commerce fight new federal overtime rule

Led by Texas and Nevada, 21 states and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are challenging the Department of Labor's new overtime rule scheduled to take effect on December 1. Created at the urging of the Obama administration, the DOL regulation raises the overtime floor for salaried employees from $23,660 to $47,476, meaning that all employees earning less than the overtime threshold (which will cover approximately 4.2 million workers previously exempt from earning overtime) will be eligible to receive overtime pay. The rule also sets guidelines that would help clarify which employees qualify for an exemption to overtime rules under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and provides for automatic increases to the salary threshold every three years.
