New regulations from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) will increase the minimum salary threshold for overtime-exempt executive, administrative and professional employees.
Under amended regulations adopted by the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I), the minimum salary level or fee basis for executive, administrative and professional will increase sharply over the next eight years.
Michigan may join Pennsylvania, Washington and other states where overtime-exempt workers will need to be paid more than the $35,568 minimum salary required by federal regulations taking effect January 1, 2020.
The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries issued draft regulations, under which the minimum salary for executive, administrative, professional and outside sales employees would increase from the current level of $23,660 to $49,140 for large employers and to $35,100 for small employers, effective July 1, 2020.
Under proposed regulations projected to take effect in January 2020, an additional 1.1 million workers who are currently overtime-exempt could become eligible for overtime unless their employers raise their salaries, the US Department of Labor (DOL) estimates.
