Fair Labor Standards Act: Minimum Wage and New Overtime Rules
U.S. Department of Labor Finalizes New Overtime Rules 

The nonprofit sector—including many Oklahoma museums and almost ALL their employees —will be affected by the Fair Labor Standards Act and its new overtime rules. Under the new rules—which will go into effect on December 1, 2016—a full-time, salaried employee earning less than $47,476 per year could now be eligible to receive overtime pay. The Department of Labor estimates that 4.2 million workers will be affected by this change. Oklahoma museums should plan now on how to be in compliance with the new overtime rules.

Although there are many articles and resources available on the topic, the Oklahoma Museums Association believes the following list of resources are most beneficial to Oklahoma museums.


Also, as reported in a recent American Alliance of Museums magazine article, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has spent the past year reviewing federal rules for when an employee is eligible for overtime compensation, and new guidelines have now been finalized.
