A final Labor Department rule expanding overtime eligibility probably won’t come until late next year, Solicitor of Labor Patricia Smith revealed at a panel discussion. The department has proposed raising the salary limit for overtime eligibility to $50,400, from $23,660. The rule had been expected to go into effect late in 2015 or early in 2016. The longer time frame is due to the complexity of the rule and the volume of comments the department has received. We will keep you posted!
