Small Business Legislative Council Sends Comments to DOL on Overtime Rule


In July, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued a request for information on last year’s Obama Administration’s overtime rule, meaning it was seeking public comments for the next 60 days. In the request for information, DOL acknowledged complaints from business groups that the Obama Administration's salary threshold was too high.

The request solicited opinion on whether DOL should adjust the 2004 salary threshold of $23,660 to inflation; whether there should be "multiple standard salary levels" based on the size of the employer, census region or other factors; whether there should be "different standard salary levels for the executive, administrative and professional exemptions"; whether the 2016 rule supplanted the duties test; whether the salary threshold should update automatically; and whether employers should rely only on a duties test "without regard to the amount of salary paid by the employer."

On Monday, the Small Business Legislative Council, of which PMAA is a member, submitted comments to DOL in response to its request for information regarding the overtime exemptions to the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. In its comments, the SBLC discussed its thoughts on the DOL’s 2016 final overtime rules and provided feedback to the DOL on what it should do with the overtime rules going forward.
