As most of you know by now, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently finalized changes to the overtime rule that will make approximately 4.2 million currently exempt employees eligible for overtime pay beginning Dec. 1, 2016. The new exempt salary threshold has been raised to $47,476 and the rule includes a hike every three years in the minimum salary for exempt employees.
