DOL Overtime Rule Sent to White House

A proposed rule from the Department of Labor (DOL) is reportedly being sent to the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs for final review on August 12. The rule would raise the overtime (OT) threshold for time-and-a-half pay requirements from the current $24,000 to $35,308. IWLA was a signatory on the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity ‘s (PPWO) comments, which were mostly in support of the DOL’s proposed rule to raise the OT threshold. Many consider the current proposed rule to be more favorable than the 2016 DOL OT rule that would have set a $47,476 threshold but was ultimately prohibited from going into effect.
