Many employees who are not eligible for overtime pay, including employees of nonprofit organizations, will become eligible on January 1, 2020 because of a new final overtime rule issued by the Department of Labor on September 24, 2019. The salary threshold for overtime eligibility will increase from $455 per week to $684 per week. Nonprofit employers should start planning now to address the obligation to pay overtime to employees who are not eligible for overtime under the current rules as these new rules may lead to significant additional costs.
