On December 1, 2016, the salary threshold for overtime pay is set to nearly double from $23,660 to $47,476, by way of the Fair Labor Standards Act. For business owners, this means salaried employees earning less than $47,476 will now need to be paid overtime for any time worked over 40 hours in a given week. This is no small change, and small business owners in particular are poised to be hit hard by these new regulations.
