Start Planning Now: New Overtime Rules Will Take Effect on December 1, 2016

The U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) new overtime regulations will mean that many more employees of North Carolina nonprofits will be entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours per week. These changes, which will take effect on December 1, 2016, will affect thousands of nonprofits in North Carolina.

Employers have various options to comply with these changes in overtime rules, ranging from increasing exempt employees' salaries to the new level, converting them to hourly employees and paying overtime, or making other changes to benefits or operations. For more, see the Center's summary of the changes, compliance options for nonprofits, and more.
