Although Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced his plans to increase the overtime threshold back in January of this year, the state Department of Labor and Industries (DLI) didn’t get around to it until last week – but they certainly made up for the delay. On June 12, DLI issued a proposed regulation that amends the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act (PMWA) by more than doubling the current federal overtime threshold of $23,660 over three steps to $47,892 – even higher than the Obama administration sought to do back in 2016 (ultimately, the federal court tossed out that increase). The regulation is now subject to a 30 day public comment period and will become effective on the day it is published in The Pennsylvania Bulletin.
