Chamber630 has taken an opposing position on the Department of Labor Overtime Rule. This rule effects anyone who works. To learn more about this fast approaching mandate, feel free to view this webinar. If you would like to raise your objections to the overtime rule with Congress, and ask that members of the House and Senate to cosponsor the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act, click here.
The Department of Labor recently released its final overtime regulation increasing the salary threshold below which employees must be paid overtime for working more than 40 hours a week from $23,660 annually to $47,476 annually. This threshold will take effect on December 1, 2016, and it will increase every three years. Click here and here for additional background information. The Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act (S. 2707 and H.R. 4773) would keep the regulation from taking effect and require the Department of Labor to perform a better analysis on the impact to small businesses, nonprofits, regional economies, and local governments. I encourage you and to reach out to Congress and ask them to cosponsor S. 2707 and H.R. 4773.
