FLSA – On December 1st, the federal annual salary threshold for employees exempt from overtime pay will double, increasing from $23,660 to 47,476. Employees who make less than the threshold must be paid time-and-a-half for any hours worked beyond the 40-hour workweek. Many employers will not be able to increase salaried employees’ pay to the new higher amount so those employees will become non-exempt.
