Overtime Taxed Again

Another Sarkozy reform disappears: taxation of overtime pay will resume on Aug. 1. There will be no retroactive tax, however. Overtime tax exemption did increase pay for a substantial number of workers, but it probably (the point is mildly controversial) encouraged employers to substitute overtime for new hires, so that its impact on employment was likely somewhat negative.
