Image for Learn About New Overtime Rules and the Impact on Nonprofits

May 19, 2016

On Wednesday, May 18, the U.S. Labor Department issued new regulations regarding overtime pay for salaried workers. Under the new rules, workers earning up to $47,476 must receive overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours in a week. The new regulation will go into effect on December 1, 2016.

As nonprofits are uniquely identified in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the new overtime rules may apply differently depending on the location and type of nonprofit. The department of labor has issued an overview of the how the law will impact nonprofits as well as detailed guidance for the nonprofit sector. The National Council of Nonprofits, which is holding a survey on how the new regulations will affect your organization, also provides useful background information on the new law and it's sector-relevant stipulations.

For more information, Independent Sector is holding a series of free webinars entitled Overtime Rules for Nonprofits. The webinars will provide "a two-part digital learning series about how to comply with federal overtime rules and how to prepare for potentially major changes on the horizon." The first webinar will take place Tuesday, May 24, 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET and the second will be on Tuesday, May 31, 1:00 - 2:30 PM ET.
