DOL Proposed Overtime Reforms Impacts Nonprofits

National Council of Nonprofits:  “The U.S. Department of Labor has proposed sweeping new regulations designed to expand overtime protections for millions of workers employed by nonprofits, for-profits, and governments. The draft regulations, which will not go into effect (if at all) until after a period of public comment and analysis, would more than double the minimum salary level that white-collar employees must be paid (from $23,660 to $50,400) to exempt them from overtime pay of time and half of wages for hours worked in excess of 40 in any week. The Labor Department is also proposing raising the minimum salary level for ‘highly compensated employees’ from $100,000 to over $120,000 per year, and seeking comments on whether the government should establish a mechanism for automatically raising these salary levels in the future.  The National Council of Nonprofits encourages all nonprofits to conduct a mission-based analysis of these proposed regulations.

However, that’s a poor business strategy to rely on for recruiting or retaining the right person for the most pivotal position to the organization’s success.”
