Oregon Employment Law Update – February 2017
BOLI Updates Overtime Guidance for Manufacturers and Other Industries
The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) recently announced a new interpretation of its overtime rules. Under the new guidance, employees in manufacturing establishments must be paid overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week and overtime for any hours over 10 hours in any given day. Manufacturing establishments may no longer continue with the former practice of paying employees the greater of the daily overtime rate or the weekly overtime rate. BOLI has updated its Field Operations Manual to reflect the new interpretation.
