Nonprofit organizations will also be effected by the overtime rule updates. According to Alabama Association of Nonprofits CEO Shannon Ammons, the rule will hinder the flexible schedule and hours of many nonprofit organizations and their employees.

"Because many of the essential services we provide are delivered after typical business hours and weekends, nonprofits will absolutely be impacted," Ammons wrote in an email interview. "We work when our clients and individuals need us."

Although the overtime rule may pose challenges for nonprofits, Ammons echoed Shea's sentiment about the underlying premise of the revisions.

"On the positive side of this issue, I believe individuals should be paid a fair wage for the work they perform," Ammons said. "However a blanket ruling and huge increases that seem punitive may not be the answer."
