DOL Overtime Rule Published May 18, 2016
On May 18, 2016, President Obama and Labor Secretary Perez announced the publication of the Department of Labor's final rule regarding overtime pay. The DOL estimates that overtime pay protection will be extended to over four million workers within the first year of the rule's implementation. WDJW attorneys Madeline Wirt and David Dickerson have given presentations on the topic and are prepared to help employers of all sizes as they work to implement the new rule. Of particular importance, employers need to review salaries and job descriptions, along with gathering information about the day-to-day tasks of employees. WDJW can assist employers with these tasks, and WDJW can offer fixed fee arrangements for many employers.
