On May 18, 2016, President Obama and Secretary Perez announced the publication of the Department of Labor (DOL)’s final rule updating the overtime regulations, which will automatically extend overtime pay protections to over 4 million workers within the first year of implementation. This ruling is effective December 1, 2016 and employers in ALL industries will need to understand how these new rules will affect their company. If these new are ignored or mismanaged, the result could lead to DOL penalties, as well as issues with benefit plans and payroll taxes.
