How could the changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) affect my job?

The U.S. Department of Labor updated the FLSA regulations related to overtime and exemptions for executive, administrative, and professional employees. Currently, workers who make less than $23,660 per year ($455/week) are considered non-exempt (hourly) from the overtime provisions of the FLSA and therefore are paid 1.5 times regular pay for overtime hours. The updated regulations increase this salary threshold from $23,660 per year to $47,476 per year ($913/week).
