FLSA Overtime Pay Changes Overview

In May of 2016, the US Department of Labor announced a dramatically higher salary threshold for overtime pay – from $23,660 to $47,476. Days before it was scheduled to go into effect Dec. 1, 2016, a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction to delay implementation of the overtime pay changes. Currently, the changes are under review and no timeline has been announced for further action. The infographic below shows what the DOL had proposed would affect overtime pay; many organizations had already made pay changes to prepare for the Dec. 1 deadline.
