Broadcasters And Other Media Employers Must Navigate New Overtime Requirements

On April 23, the U.S. Department of Labor published final regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act that ultimately raise the minimum salary necessary to be exempt from federal overtime rules by 65%. These changes affect all businesses subject to the FLSA, but broadcasters and other media employers may particularly feel the impact given that they rarely operate on a 9 a.m.-to-5 p.m. schedule. The increase will occur in two steps, with the first going into effect on July 1, 2024, and the second occurring on Jan. 1, 2025.
