DOL Announces Listening Sessions on Overtime Rule

Share this page

The U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) overtime rule has been a key issue for ANCOR – one which we centered our Save Our Services campaign on in 2016 and have been tracking throughout 2017 and 2018. Most recently, when DOL issued a Request for Information (RFI) on the overtime rule, ANCOR submitted comments. DOL has just announced that it will be holding listening sessions on this issue – please see below for the announcement and schedule.

“The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division has announced that in the upcoming weeks, it will hold public listening sessions to gather views on the Part 541 white collar exemption regulations, often referred to as the “Overtime Rule.”

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.

Listening sessions will be held in the following cities:
