What Is The New FLSA Overtime Rule?

  • The rule extends overtime protections to 4.2 million workers who are not currently eligible under federal law.
  • Workers who do not earn at least $47,476 a year ($913 a week) will have to be paid overtime, even if they're classified as a manager or professional.
