Guidance for Nonprofits on new Overtime Laws

In May, the Department of Labor released a report that outlines how nonprofit organizations pay overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act.


When it go into effect on December 1, 2016, most employees earning less than $47,500 per year will be entitled to overtime pay, regardless of whether they are classified as executive, administrative, or professional workers.


The final rule applies to employers in all sectors, but according to the National Council of Nonprofits, “… in an effort to address longstanding confusion about how the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the overtime regulations apply to nonprofit employers and employees, the Department of Labor (DOL) also published a special overview and guidance for nonprofit organizations.”


Key details from the new rule impact nonprofits in the areas of salary level thresholds, effective dates, automatic increase and other areas.
