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.
This week the USDOL has issued a press release announcing that it will hold “listening" sessions to "gather views” on the white collar exemptions and released new Opinion Letters addressing other FLSA topics, including the 7(I) overtime exemption for certain employees of qualifying retail and service establishments.
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.
