Small businesses preparing for new regulations regarding overtime

Small business owners are using the remaining time they have to prepare their companies and their employees for the impending change in overtime rules.

As the federal regulations are expected to take effect on Thursday, December 1, human resources experts say they are receiving an infinite amount of calls from business owners asking for assistance complying with the new rule. The law is expected to affect the paychecks of approximately 4.2 million workers in the country. With only weeks before the deadline, business owners and HR consultants are seeing no possibility of a deadline extension. Westmont, Illinois-based HR firm Employco President Rob Wilson said, “We’re telling clients, ‘You need to get your act together. This is happening.’”
