This is already not going over well among the people this “law” is aiming to “help” … not surprising:

Salary Threshold for Hourly Employees to Change

The U.S. Department of Labor has announced changes to how some employees are paid by announcing an increase to the salary threshold used to determine eligibility for overtime pay. Effective December 1, 2016, those who earn below $47,476 a year (with the exception of physicians, attorneys, and employees whose primary role is teaching) will be classified as non-exempt employees, who are paid on an hourly basis and are eligible for overtime. Non-exempt employees are required to use HRMS to track their time worked and also their paid leave time. Employers have been given six months to implement the change, and the University will use that time to assess the best ways forward to allow for full compliance. More information on the transition will be provided in a timely fashion. An FAQ will be made available through @Rochester within the next few days to explain the changes and how they will affect employees. Affected employees and their managers will receive further information directly from HR before the new pay scheme goes into effect later this year. Employees who have further questions should contact the appropriate HR Business Partner.
