Working hard? Do the new overtime rules impact you?
Workers earning less than $23,660 annually are guaranteed overtime pay when logging more than 40 hours per week. But on Dec. 1, the United States Department of Labor will update this overtime rule. The updated rule will mean workers who are paid $47,476 annually or less will now be guaranteed overtime pay.
