Modern Healthcare

Millions of full-time healthcare workers will be eligible for overtime pay under a new federal rule that nearly doubled the threshold at which companies can deny it. But not all in the healthcare industry are cheering the news.The new Obama administration rule is expected to affect a total of 4.2 million workers. The increase to $47,476 will start this December and will affect employees who clock in more than 40 hours a week. The policy updates rules that date back to the 1930s and require employers to pay 1.5 times a worker’s regular salary for any work past 40 hours a week.
