DOL announces overtime expansion proposal
The long awaited proposal to update regulations on exempt executive, administrative, professional, and certain other employees has been released be the Department of Labor (DOL). This proposal covers minimum wage and overtime requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
For those states that had already established legalization, there will be little to no legal impact, but for other states employees should look into their rights regarding circumstances of granting leave under the FMLA, medical insurance, and retirement plans.
