In just over a month, new federal regulations will extend overtime pay eligibility to an additional 4 million workers in the United States, including 200,000 in Illinois. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, health care workers are expected to make up the bulk of those affected.

To help you prepare, ISMS developed an Issue Brief, New Federal Overtime Rules. This resource covers salary thresholds; bonuses, incentive payments and commissions; “duties tests” that determine a worker’s eligibility for overtime pay; the impact on health care; and more!

The new mandate will take effect Dec. 1, 2016.
