South Dakota Overtime: What you need to know

South Dakota has no overtime law of its own. Consequently, all overtime questions are governed by federal law.
Note: The federal Department of Labor’s (DOL) final overtime regulations, effective December 1, 2016, have increased the salary level for exemption, will automatically update the salary threshold every 3 years going forward, and have allowed for the inclusion of nondiscretionary bonuses, incentive payments, and commissions toward as much as 10 percent of the salary threshold.
