DOL New Overtime Rule Blocked

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

AGC of America will continue to support legislation and regulatory changes to lower the overtime threshold and gradually phase in the requirement over several years.

The most significant change under rule is a doubling of the standard salary threshold for exempt employees – from $455 per week ($23,660 per year) to $913 per week ($47,476 per year). Many AGC contractors had already taken steps to implement this rule, such as by reducing employee hours or notifying employees of salary increases. Given the uncertain path ahead, those contractors may want to re-evaluate the overall impact of the changes made and either roll-back or keep those implementation efforts in place, considering both the impact on the company's bottom line as well as employee morale.
