This new rule does not change the fact that “Blue Collar Workers” cannot be paid on a salary basis and must be paid overtime. Workers who are non-management employees in production, maintenance, construction and similar occupations are entitled to minimum wage and overtime premium pay under the FLSA. This includes most green industry workers who are on site or in the field. The final overtime rule will be effective on January 1, 2020.

Due to demand, DOL Wage and Hour Division hosting additional webinars on overtime pay rule
Due to the overwhelming response received for the overtime final rule webinar on November 4 (it sold out in a half hour), the Wage and Hour Division has scheduled two additional webinars to provide compliance assistance on the final rule on:
- Provisions of the final rule so that employers can comply with the changes and inform workers and their advocates of their rights
- Specific changes that the final rule will make when it becomes effective on January 1, 2020
- Detailed information about new materials and resources available on the overtime final rule website
Throughout the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to submit questions. Wage and Hour Division hosts will answer as many of those questions as possible following the presentation.
Register for the webinar on November 12, 2019 at 12 noon Central Time.
