Labor and Employment partner David Woolf was recently quoted in a Philadelphia Inquirer article, titled, “New Overtime Reality Starts U.S. Enterprises Strategizing.” The article discussed the new U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) overtime rule that will go into effect on December 1.

The new rule will force companies to pay most full-time workers overtime if their annual salary is less than $47,476.
