Bryance Metheny Featured in IndustryWeek on New Overtime Rule

Firm News

In an article published on May 18, 2016, Bryance Metheny provides insight on the new overtime rule, which will take effect on December 1, 2016.

Metheny, who represents OEMs and automotive suppliers, expects the law to have less of an impact on the manufacturing industry, which tends to pay higher wages, than on industries like restaurant and retail where supervisors often make in the high 20s or low 30s. He speculates that most automotive suppliers who are affected will choose to raise front-line supervisor salaries to the $50K threshold to keep them exempt from overtime. "There's such a big advantage to an employer to have those positions as exempt," explains Metheny, "because if the machine goes down and chaos ensues and it takes a lot of time to put it back together, they don't have to worry about how much overtime they're going to have to pay."
