How does the Department of Labor (DOL) propose to alter the salary threshold for the federal overtime exemption?

Homecare Insider, July 6, 2015

Currently, the salary level under which administrative, executive, and professional employees (whose positions constitute white collar jobs) are eligible for overtime compensation is $23,660 per year, or $455 per week, on a salary or fee basis. The new regulation would change the annual salary for overtime eligibility to $50,440 per year, or $970 per week, on a salary or fee basis.
