Overtime Salary Threshold Increase: What Nonprofits Need to Know

Thursday, June 27, 2024
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EDT)


Event Details

This spring, the Department of Labor announced a rule that will increase the minimum salary level that employees must be paid to exempt them from overtime pay.

  1. On July 1, 2024, the standard salary threshold goes up to $844 per week/$43,888 per year from the current federal level of $684 per week/$35,568 per year. (Note: in Maine it is currently $42,450.20). 
  2. On January 1, 2025, the salary level then goes up again to $1,128 per week or $58,656 per year.
  3. Beginning July 1, 2027, the salary threshold will be automatically adjusted for inflation every three years.

Join MANP and Ann Freeman of Bernstein Shur to discuss what these changes mean for your nonprofit, how they intersect with Maine state law, and the options you have for compliance.

This webinar will cover:
  • What the Department of Labor's new overtime salary threshold means for your nonprofit
  • Options for complying with the final rule
  • Current federal lawsuits and state legislation that could complicate implementation
Intended Audience

Nonprofit staff, particularly those who are responsible for or interested in wage and hour law compliance
