U.S. DOL Plans to Update Overtime Rule

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division will host a public listening session in Washington, D.C., to gather views on the Part 541 white-collar exemption regulations, often known as the “Overtime Rule,” on October 17, 2018.

Issued under the Fair Labor Standards Act, these regulations implement exemptions from the overtime-pay requirements for executive, administrative, professional, and certain other employees. The department plans to update the Overtime Rule, and is interested in hearing the views and ideas of participants on possible revisions to the regulations. 10/4/2018
