On March 7, 2019 the Department of Labor announced a proposed rule that would make more than a million more American workers eligible for overtime. Under currently enforced law, employees with a salary below $455 per week ($23,660 annually) must be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours per week. This regulation will be effective in 2020.
This proposal would boost the proposed standard salary level to $679 per week (equivalent to $35,308 per year). Above this salary level, eligibility for overtime varies based on job duties.
- The proposal increases the minimum salary required for an employee to qualify for exemption from the currently enforced level of $455 to $679 per week (equivalent to $35,308 per year)
- The proposal increases the total annual compensation requirement for “highly compensated employees” (HCE) from the currently enforced level of $100,000 to $147,414 per year
- Allowing employers to use nondiscretionary bonuses and incentive payments (including commissions) that are paid annually or more frequently to satisfy up to 10 percent of the standard salary level
