House to Vote Today on Overtime Rule Delay; Obama Threatens Veto
The article, “House to Vote Today on Overtime Rule Delay; Obama Threatens Veto,” featured on BLR.com, discussed how the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote today on a bill that would delay the new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rules’ effective date by six months.
John Thompson and other employment law attorneys have said all along that employers should not rely on these efforts, and this bill hasn’t changed that recommendation. John said in a blog post Tuesday that H.R. 6094 would still have to pass the Senate and, if Obama vetoed it, it is unlikely that his veto would be overridden.
“Perhaps in the end there will be a reprieve of some kind,” John said. “But with only about 60 days to go, we continue to urge employers to move forward with their final preparations.”
