While action on overtime is heating up in Washington, SHRM members continue to make sure the drumbeat continues back here as well, from telling their story in their congressional districts.
Today, SHRM Labor Relations Special Expertise Panel member Nancy McKeague, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, senior vice president and chief of staff at the Michigan Health & Hospital Association, participated in a U.S. House of Representatives field hearing in Michigan on the 21st century workforce.
In her testimony, McKeague (pictured with Michigan Representatives Mike Bishop and Tim Walberg, chairman of the House Workforce Protections Subcommittee) explained how the Fair Labor Standards Act hinders an employer’s ability to provide workplace flexibility and discussed how the overtime proposal will require an estimated $35,000 in additional payroll costs for her employer in the first year alone. She also explained how required automatic increases to the salary threshold each year will lead to other unplanned costs to employers, including increases in 401(k) contributions and life insurance premiums, as well as wage compression issues. Stay tuned to SHRM for more information about a final overtime rule, expected to be announced later this spring or early summer!
