DOL’s New “Salary Threshold” Overtime Rule

Employer Impact and Response Considerations for 2024 and Beyond

May 9, 2024

Complimentary Webinar

On April 23, 2024, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published its final rule increasing salary threshold amounts required for certain employees to be “exempt” from federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime requirements. By expanding the effective scope of who is and is not required to be paid federal overtime for hours worked over 40 in a workweek, the final rule will have a significant impact on employer operations and budgets nationwide — with changes effective beginning on July 1, 2024.
