The Department of Labor has launched a new Internet tool for helping businesses
comply with updated overtime-exemption rules.
The new tool, the FLSA Overtime Security Advisor (http://www.dol.gov/elaws/overtime.htm),
is part of the department's outreach effort to ensure businesses are in compliance
with new overtime rules, which became effective August 23. Workers can also
access the tool to learn about their rights under new rules.
The tool uses a question and answer format for educating employers and employees
about the overtime-exemption rules.
Additional information about the Overtime Security Rule can also be found at
This website includes a variety of tools or resources such as fact sheets and
on-line training seminars.
