New DOL Overtime Rules Delayed
The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that will delay the effective date of the Department of Labor’s overtime rule by six months. The House voted 246 – 177 to move, from December 1, 2016, to June 1 of the following year, the implementation date of a DOL final rule that will more than double (from $23,660 to $47,476) the salary threshold under which most workers must receive time-and-a-half overtime pay when exceeding 40 hours in a workweek.
The issue now goes to the Senate for their vote. If passed by the Senate, it will then go to President Obama for either signature or veto.
