Overtime Pay for More White-Collar Workers Blocked

11/28/16 - An Obama administration policy that would have given more white-collar workers overtime pay starting December 1, was blocked last week nationwide by a federal judge in Texas.
The new legislation would provide overtime pay to more than 4 million low paid managers, who currently don't qualify for that. At the moment, under the FLSA, if an employee makes at least $23,660 per year - or $455 per week - their employer doesn't have to pay them overtime. The new policy would raise that bar to $47,476 annually or $913 per week for a full time worker. As a result of the court's ruling, this new salary threshold will not become effective on December 1, 2016. 
The Labor Department considers an appeal, but changes to the existing policy face an uncertain future under the Trump administration and the Republican controlled congress. 

08/27/16 - Apple, Facebook. and General Motors, the first U.S. automaker to have a female chief executive officer, are among more than two dozen companies that added their names to a White House pledge to study gender pay gaps among their employees. The agreement signed by 29 companies on Friday includes an annual review of pay by gender at each company, and an examination of hiring and promotion practices for unconscious bias and barriers to women reaching higher-level jobs.

Obama Announces Ruling to Close Gender Pay Gap

01/29/16 - The Obama administration announced plans to start collecting data on the earnings of women and minorities at large U.S. companies in order to address pay discrimination. Under the proposal The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) would require employers with 100 or more employees to provide the agency with detailed wage information, broken down by gender, race and ethnicity. Unlike a similar Labor Department rule proposed earlier, it would apply to all large businesses and not just federal contractors. 
The plan, which is expected to take effect in September 2017 does not require congressional approval.

Some facts: when federal and state law have different minimum wage rates, the higher standard applies. And tipped workers: your overtime hourly rate can never be less than your minimum wage. Check our minimum wage section.
