More Overtime Pay On The Way: What New Rules Will Change

New federal rules mean that thousands more workers will be eligible for overtime pay. We're talking about what changes the new policies will bring to workplaces in the state.

New federal rules from the Department of Labor mean that millions more Americans — and many thousands more Vermonters — will be eligible for overtime pay. 

That could mean big changes for many workplaces: on hours, jobs and the bottom line. And even workers whose pay isn't directly affected by the new rules could face changes in how their work is managed and scheduled. We're looking at whom and where the new rules will hit, and what the shake-up could look like.

We're joined by Kerin Stackpole, who leads the employment and labor law group at Paul Frank and Collins Attorneys, and by Vermont Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan.

Also on the program: a combination of domestic and international factors has led to low prices for milk — and a glut of cheese. We're checking in on the latest with Bob Parsons of UVM Extension.

Broadcast live on Monday, May 23, 2016, at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
