New rules from the U-S Department of Labor will mean overtime pay for millions of Americans who until now had been exempt from the additional money. President Obama pushed for the changes which may impact as many as 4 Million people across the country and more than 100,000 in Michigan. Brian Kreucher is an employment law specialist with Howard & Howard law firm. He tells WDET’s Amy Miller that the changes are generally good news for employees but some employers might be looking for ways around the new rules.
