Around 4 million more Americans will soon be eligible for overtime pay. The Obama administration recently passed new federal regulations that double the minimum salary a worker must be paid to be “exempt” from overtime. WPSU’s Emily Reddy talked with Penn State’s head of Human Resources, Susan Basso, about how the university plans to handle the change. 

The Department of Labor has details about the overtime law on its website, including information specific to higher education. 

Penn State has created a website to answer employees' questions about the overtime law changes.
