PPWO Reiterates Concerns with Anticipated Overtime Rulemaking

On May 25, 2023, the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity and 104 employer organizations that represent a wide range of stakeholders from the private, public, and education sectors sent a letter to DOL urging the agency to abandon or at least postpone issuance of its anticipated proposed rulemaking altering the overtime regulations under the FLSA.

As we explain in the letter, “Even though the COVID-19 public health emergency has been lifted, concerns with supply chain disruptions, workforce shortages, inflationary pressures, and the shifting dynamics of the American workforce persist, and any rule change now would threaten a particularly vulnerable and recovering economy.”
