Employers Face Major Changes with New Overtime Pay Requirements

Scott Tackett explains impact and path forward for businesses after DOL's final overtime rule in Straight Talk!.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently released its final rule, updating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)’s overtime pay requirements. The rule increases the minimum salary threshold to US$43,888 on July 1 and then to $58,656 on January 1, 2025.

This significant change will profoundly impact both business owners and employees. The new thresholds may increase payroll costs and necessitate budgeting and staffing strategy adjustments for business owners, particularly those in small and medium-sized enterprises. They may need to reclassify employees, reassess work hours, and reduce overtime to manage expenses.

On the other hand, employees who fall below the new salary thresholds will benefit from increased pay due to overtime eligibility. This adjustment ensures fair compensation for longer work hours, improving work-life balance and potentially increasing job satisfaction and retention rates. Both parties must navigate this transition carefully to maximize the benefits and mitigate any challenges arising from the updated FLSA regulations.

Scott Tackett, a business development advisor with Violand Management Associates, explains the impact and path forward for businesses. Watch the video or listen to the podcast below.
