Starting December 1st, 2016, millions of previously exempt workers will become eligible for overtime pay. This change will expand access to overtime pay for otherwise low-salaried workers who log long hours, but have been exempted from overtime because they perform some managerial duties. This is good news for employees, however employers will now have to re-classify existing workers and also pay more, depending on the number of exempt employees they have.

Complying with the regulation with minimum financial impact to your practice will not be easy. CureMD interviewed Mr. Jeffrey H. Ruzal, Senior Counsel in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the New York office of Epstein Becker Green to help you understand the rule, its implications for your practice, and how to go about the change.
