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

Here we go again! On March 27th the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published the new, proposed overtime rule.  The public has 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. Then, on March 28th, the DOL issued another proposed rule regarding the “regular” rate of pay and how that should be defined. In 2016, your webcast facilitator, Christine V. Walters, JD, MAS, SHRM-SCP, SPHR had the honor of testifying before Congress about the impact the new rule overtime 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 these latest variations, including and not limited to:
