DOL’s Request for Information on the Overtime Rule to Be Published July 26

The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division will publish in the July 26 Federal Register the much anticipated Request for Information (RFI) on the currently enjoined Obama administration’s overtime rule (an unofficial copy of the RFI can be accessed here).

The RFI invites the public to comment on a multitude of questions, including “whether the standard salary level set in that rule effectively identifies employees who may be exempt, whether a different salary level would more appropriately identify such employees, the basis for setting a different salary level, and why a different salary level would be more appropriate or effective.”

CUPA-HR will evaluate the RFI and plans to submit substantive comments on behalf of higher education with the help of our membership. Comments will be due 60 days from July 26.
