    U.S. Department of Labor to Host Listening Sessions About Proposed Overtime Rule

    WASHINGTON, DC The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division has announced that in the upcoming weeks it will hold public listening sessions in order to gather views on the Part 541white-collar exemption regulations, often referred to as the “Overtime Rule.”
    Issued under the Fair Labor Standards Act, these regulations implement exemptions from the overtime pay requirements for executive, administrative, professional, and certain other employees.  The Department plans to update the Overtime Rule and is interested in hearing the views and ideas of participants on possible revisions to the regulations.
    Listening sessions will be held in Providence:
    September 24, 2018
    10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
    Rhode Island Convention Center
    1 Sabin Street, Room 551A/B
    Providence, RI 02903
    There is no fee to attend the listening sessions; however, registration is required.  To register for one of the sessions above, click here.
