How does my nonprofit organization comply with new overtime regulations?
Answered by: SCANPO

The U.S. Department of Labor recently published new overtime regulations that will require most employers (including many nonprofit organizations) to pay overtime to all employees earning less than $47,476. There are a variety of resources available to research what is required by law, and how the law specifically impacts nonprofits.

The National Council of Nonprofits has provided a summary with key details of the new rule on their Overtime Regulations and the Impact on Nonprofits page. Additional information and insight about the impact to nonprofits is available in their report: The Nonprofit Overtime Implementation Conundrum.

Also, a video in response to the new rules has been shared by our friends at Common Good Vermont to further discuss this topic. This video was created with Vermont Nonprofits in mind and some aspects of the law may vary from state to state, but the video provides great information for any nonprofit (including those in South Carolina) and features Kerin Stapkpole who leads the Employment + Labor Law Group of Paul, Frank & Collins.
