NAMB Applauds the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for Upcoming Changes



Monday, October 24, 2016

This week, I am going to bring you all up to date on the “White Collar Exemptions in the Overtime final Rule” for private employers. The question is, how many of you are currently being paid for your time worked, whether it is at an hourly wage or salary as an originator? According to the Wage and Hour Division, you must be paid for your time worked, even if it is a draw against commissions. That way, even if you do not close any loans, you are paid for your time. In most cases, you are probably drawing a certain amount and are considered a salaried individual, exempt from overtime. The threshold for this amount is $455 per week, or $1,810 per month ($23,660 per year). This keeps you from having to be paid overtime for hours over 40 per week and removes you from the supervisory position of overseeing two other employees.
