DOL Hosts Listening Sessions on Overtime Regulations
The Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) is hosting a series of listening sessions to gather worker and employer feedback on minimum wage and overtime exemption regulations. The sessions specifically relate to the 2019 WHD rule that updated the earnings thresholds necessary to exempt executive, administrative, and professional employees from the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) minimum wage and overtime pay requirements.
WHD seeks stakeholder input on issues such as:
The appropriate salary level above which the exemptions for bona fide executive, administrative, or professional employees may apply.
The costs and benefits of increasing the salary level to employers and employees, including increasing wages and reducing litigation costs.
The best methodology for updating the salary level, and the appropriate frequency of updates.
Whether other changes to the overtime regulations are warranted.
