Department of Labor Overtime Regulation Proposal Survey
The Department of Labor recently proposed changing a rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to more than double the pay level at which salaried workers must receive overtime. Currently, salaried employees need not be paid overtime if they earn $455 a week or $23,660 per year. The change is expected to raise this amount to $970 per week or $50,440 per year in 2016. Millions of Americans in managerial/sales positions earning salaries between these amounts will shift from exempt to non-exempt status. Employers will be required to pay them one and one-half times their normal pay rate for work hours exceeding 40 in a workweek.
TRSA is drafting comments for submission opposing this new rule. We need accurate information to include in the comments.
Please fill out this short confidential questionnaire to aide TRSA in developing the comments. (Larger operations, please estimate in tens or hundreds of workers as appropriate).
Survey is now closed.
