Upcoming Change to Payroll Rule Increases Pay Threshold for Overtime

In 2016, the Obama administration proposed a change to the threshold for requiring overtime pay.  It was met with fierce opposition form most states and later shelved.  Now a new rule is set to go into effect in 2020 boosting the minimum pay threshold to require overtime from $23,660 to $35,568.  This is a more moderate change compared to the 2016 proposal of over $47,000.
