    All of my employees are nonexempt employees ... so it won't effect most unless you have alot of salaried paid or officers of exempt

    Fore me I pay 1.5 over 40 either way ..... here if FL I don't even have to pay OT with yearly Business Gross under $500K .... But NO employee would like that too much

    I am glad that I am not the only one that doesn't know what the fine line is in regards to everything

    Well from What I have read there is no change for hourly workers. The only changes come to salaried employees.

    In a nutshell those making under $23,660 a year will be automatically entitled to overtime pay. Those who make over $100k will not be eligible for overtime pay. those in between......well I can not find much on them.;)
