The FLSA Overtime Regulations will not be postponed.
On September 28, 2016, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 6094, the Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits Act. This Act will. If it passes the Senate and the Executive office, HR and payroll professionals can postpone the start of the Department of Labor’s Final Rule until June 1, 2017, six months past its original implementation date of Dec. 1, 2016. The President’s administration, however, has publically announced that the bill’s goal is to “delay and then deny overtime pay to workers” and that he will veto the bill. Employers should continue the process of ensuring their compliance with the new overtime rules and should proceed as though the law’s implementation will not be delayed.
