A new federal rule on paying certain salaried employees overtime is scheduled to go into effect this December.

Last month, the U.S. Department of Laborreleased its new overtime rule, which is expected to make millions of salaried management, administrative and professional employees eligible for overtime pay.

But Senate Republicans are trying to block the new rule from going into effect on December 1, 2016, as scheduled.

Joining us to examine details of the new rule and how it could affect employers and employees are Director of The Economics Center at the University of Cincinnati, Dr. Julie Heath; Employee Benefit Specialist and Partner withSEBS, Strategic Employee Benefit Services, Jennifer Homer; and Partner atVorys,Sater, Seymour and Pease law firm, Angela Gibson.
