If you are not paying your administrative, professional, or executive employees at least $913 per week (the equivalent of $47,476 per year), you may have to pay those employees overtime if they work more than forty hours per week, effective December 1, 2016. Why? The Department of Labor is increasing the minimum salary threshold for the overtime exemption for such employees from the current requirement of at least $455 per week.
