LSA Seeks Extension in Overtime Rule Comment Period
On July 6, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released a proposed rule intended to increase the number of workers who are eligible to receive overtime pay. Currently, the only way a worker is automatically guaranteed time-and-a-half pay after working more than 40 hours a week is if they earn less than $23,660 a year. DOL is proposing to raise that threshold to $50,440. As this proposal is likely to have a significant impact on the LSA network, LSA has launched a legislative and regulatory strategy that includes requesting a 60-day extension of the public comment period and formulating substantive comments that represent the viewpoints of the LSA network.
