L&I Releases New Overtime Pay Guidance Tool

June 24, 2020

Washington State’s new overtime pay regulations take effect July 1, 2020. The new rules establish an overtime pay threshold of 2.5 times the state’s minimum wage with a phased-in implementation until 2028. For an employee to be exempt from overtime pay obligations, they will need to earn more than the threshold specified by the Department of Labor & Industries and satisfy the relevant duties test. To help employers comply with the new rules, L&I created a new virtual guidance tool available here. WSHA’s bulletin on the new overtime pay rules can be accessed here.
