Formal Request to Postpone Salary Threshold Hike Sent [UPDATE]

Mon, May 09, 2022 4:27 PM | Anonymous

A coalition of business organizations, including CIRT and many of the design/construction industry groups, joined together to formally requested the Department of Labor’s (DOL or Department) Wage and Hour Division abandon or at least postpone issuance of its announced proposed rulemaking altering the overtime regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).  The Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity (PPWO or Partnership) urged this cancellation due to significant concerns with supply chain disruptions, workforce shortages, inflationary pressures, and the shifting dynamics of the American workforce following the COVID-19 pandemic.  The group pointed out that any rule change now would be ill-advised; especially since DOL last updated the overtime regulations less than three years ago (taking effect in January 2020), which strongly suggests there is no need for urgency in issuing more changes.
