Expanded Overtime: How the Updated DOL Rule Impacts Employers – Webinar

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The U.S. Department of Labor recently issued a rule increasing the salary threshold required to exempt workers from overtime pay – an administrative action that could have significant implications for how employers in Pennsylvania comply with overtime pay requirements.

Specifically, the rule increases the required minimum annual salary level for many overtime-exempt employees from $35,568 to $43,888 effective July 1, 2024, and then to $58,656 by the beginning of 2025, with automatic increases every three years based on wage data.

McNees Wallace & Nurick attorneys Adam Long and Austin Wolfe will discuss the significant implications that the DOL’s administrative action could have for Pennsylvania employers’ compliance with overtime pay, along with options and next steps you can take to protect your business!
