HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Members of Hattiesburg City Council have agreed to work with an outside company to conduct wage assessments ahead of new federal overtime pay regulations.

During Tuesday’s council meeting, The Hattiesburg American reports (https://hatne.ws/29TkGZK) council members voted 5-0 to authorize Craft Entities to provide its services for 12 months, during which time the company will offer suggestions for compliance with new standards that begin Dec. 1.

The threshold at which workers are exempt from overtime pay will rise from $23,660 to $47,476.

Council members hope to have the assessments done before the budget is set in mid-September.
