Federal Overtime Rule Pushed to August 2023

26 Jun


Update Applicable to:

All employers

What happened?

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced in the spring regulatory agenda that it will issue the proposed overtime rule in August 2023.

What are the details?

Employers should keep in mind that regulatory agendas are the agencies’ predictions of when rules will be issued and aren’t set in stone. The DOL has been announcing the release of a proposed overtime rule as far back as last year. Given the current status of the President’s nominees for both the Secretary of Labor and the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) Administrator, further pushback of this date certainly seems possible.

It’s possible the proposed rule will include increases to the exempt salary threshold based on the consumer price index, or increased pursuant to the normal rulemaking process. Additionally, the DOL may also make changes to the duties test in determining whether or not an employee meets the exemption requirements.

The agency has yet to disclose any specific details of the rule’s content and proposed changes.
