Tribal Government Overtime Listening Session
May 2 @ 2:30 pm - May 12 @ 2:30 pm CDT
The Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division previously announced that it is reviewing the regulations that implement the Fair Labor Standards Act’s minimum wage and overtime exemptions for bona fide executive, administrative, and professional employees. The Department is now holding a series of listening sessions to hear diverse views of participants on possible revisions to the regulations, building on a series of listening sessions that the Department has hosted on this topic across administrations over the last 8 years.
They invite you and additional representatives as you see fit to join a virtual listening session with Departmental officials on May 12, 2022 at 3:30 PM ET. At that time, they welcome your input on issues such as:
- the appropriate salary level above which the exemptions for bona fide executive, administrative, or professional employees may apply;
- the costs and benefits of increasing the salary level to employers and employees, including increasing wages and reducing litigation costs;
- the best methodology for updating the salary level, and the appropriate frequency of updates;
- whether other changes to the overtime regulations are warranted.
If you are interested in reading more about these topics prior to the listening session, linked here are helpful factsheets from Wage and Hour Division.
Please register here Monday, May 9, 2022. You will be emailed a link to the event 24 hours prior.
