The U.S. Department of Labor issued its final rule regarding overtime regulations.
The final rule, which becomes effective Dec. 1, raises the salary threshold indicating eligibility for overtime pay from $455/week to $913 ($47,476 per year), ensuring protections to 4.2 million workers. It automatically updates the salary threshold every three years, based on wage growth over time.

His practice focuses primarily on labor and employment litigation and counseling, non-compete and restrictive covenant litigation, and general civil litigation.
