DOL Regional Virtual Listening Sessions on Possible Changes to the Overtime Rule

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division previously announced that it is reviewing its overtime regulations. DOL is now offering five regional virtual listening sessions in May and June and would like to hear feedback from employers on possible revisions to the regulations. Learn more about the dates, times and how to register for the virtual regional meetings.

In March, ABC National and other employer groups participated in DOL and Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy listening sessions on a possible new overtime rule. ABC expressed serious concerns about DOL moving forward with an overtime proposal and urged the department to postpone any future rulemaking.
