The New, Proposed Overtime Rule: Another Call to Shape Public Policy

Here we go again! On March 7th the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced it had submitted its new, proposed overtime rule to the Office of the Federal Register for publication, which is still pending as of this writing (3/13/19).  Once published, the public will have 60 days to submit comments. This new, proposed rule follows the DOL’s similar efforts in 2016, when a judge blocked implementation of the previous final rule, just days before that new rule was scheduled to take effect. In 2016, your webcast facilitator, Christine V. Walters, JD, MAS, SHRM-SCP, SPHR had the honor of testifying before Congress on behalf of SHRM about the impact the new rule would have had. You can read the current 219-page draft, proposed rule here. And/or, you can join this interactive and engaging program as we review:

  • the new salary threshold and its impact to employers and employees;
  • how to calculate the fiscal impact of the proposed rule to develop your business case (including an FLSA calculator);
  • other issues and areas for which the DOL seeks public comment;
  • talking points that may be used in submitting comments to the DOL as well as your members of Congress; and
  • more!
