What You Can Do to Protect New Rules Expanding Eligibility for Overtime Wages, Raise Salaries

Your help is needed now to protect new rules that would have made millions of workers eligible for overtime pay.  On November 22, a Texas judge granted an injunction preventing U.S. Department of Labor rules expanding overtime rights from taking effect on December 1, 2016. 

Under the rules, employees who earn less than $47,476 ($913 a week) would be automatically eligible for overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours a week.  Under the old rules, the salary threshold to be eligible for overtime was much lower – just $23,660 ($455 a week).  Visit the FAQs for more information. 

If you are like the majority of Americans who earn less than $47,476 a year, the new rules directly affect you.  Take action to make sure the rules are enforced.
