Proposed rule on overtime a big deal


Many in the healthcare  sector wonder how the Obama administration’s move  to make up to 5 million more people eligible for overtime pay would affect workers. Modern Healthcare says “Some say it could benefit fee-based employees while others believe it could cause employers to scale back on hiring specialized workers.”

It is unclear how the new rule would affect the many people paid on fee basis rather than on an hourly rate. What is clear, however, is that most large enterprises would be affected in varying degrees by the rule, one of the most significant labor-market changes since the 1930s.
