Can someone please explain what exactly the new overtime pay regulations are from the "omnibus" spending bill. How is this going to effect overtime
pay now and in the future after the bill is signed into law?
The number of lawsuits against companies to recuperate delinquent overtime and other owed wages are increasing away. The number of suits has increased
almost three fold in the past ten years. Unpaid overtime violations still
on the uptick. Thus, wage and hour violations suits are often brought under the auspices of the Fair Labor Standard Act and typical claims
allege worker reclassification, such as re-classifying an employee as part-time, and unpaid overtime or miscalculated overtime pay, among other ways
some employers cheat employees out of money earned.
