David Rintoul was interviewed today on the Ray Donovan Show   on WTIC regarding President Obama’s recent announcement that the regulations of the Fair Labor Standards Act will be changed so more employees will be eligible for overtime.  Many employees who make less than $50,400 annually will now be eligible for overtime.   Previously, the limit was set at $23,600, less than the federal poverty level for a family of four. Employees who made more than this only qualified for overtime by satisfying a complex and arcane test dependent on the duties they performed.  The change will give both employees and employer more certainly about who is entitled to overtime.  David discussed the effect on workers and employers in Connecticut President Obama’s overtime changes.   If you have any questions about overtime pay in Connecticut, send David an email at drintoul@bpslawyers.com, or go to his profile at here
