Since, the Oregon legislature has taken up the issue in relation to Oregon’s own overtime exemption statute. Will Oregon opt to join Washington in mandating overtime pay for its dairy workers?
Follow along as Tim J. Bernasek and Stacie L. Damazo study the recent and upcoming shifts in the Washington and Oregon overtime exemption laws and determine how these shifts may impact your business and employment practices.
