DOL's Overtime Fail
Floating Share Widget
The Department of Labor finalized new overtime rules in May with an implementation deadline of December 1, 2016. #DOLFail-ed to listen to the concerns of small businesses, nonprofit organizations, universities and public sector employers. #DOLFail-ed to consider negative consequences on career advancement. And #DOLFail-ed to account for real world economic impacts.
There is bipartisan concern in Congress about the negative impacts this drastic increase will have on small businesses, nonprofits and universities and only Congress has the power to work together to address these concerns.

Ask your Senators to support relief from new overtime rules.
The House recently voted for a six-month delay in implementation of the new overtime rules. This is a significant step in bringing relief to retailers, but it's not over. The Senate now has a chance to vote on similar legislation. Contact your senators now.
DOL’s new overtime rules are a massive failure. They are a failure of the regulatory process. They are a failure to listen. And, most of all, they are a failure to face reality.
An Oxford Economics study commissioned by NRF shows how overtime expansion would impact nearly 1.7 million retail and restaurant workers.
