Fisher Phillips continues to urge USDOL to publish a valid "Overtime Rule" that is practical to apply.
USDOL reportedly is submitting a proposed rule for review by the federal Office of Management and Budget. Publication on target for first quarter.
The first of several USDOL "listening" sessions provided few answers. The primary question remains whether the agency will listen this time around as it takes on the FLSA's white-collar exemptions.
President Obama has instructed the U.S. Labor Department to revise the FLSA's so-called "white collar" exemptions. The goal is to increase the number of non-exempt employees.
