Proposed regulations to revise the white-collar exemptions to the overtime rules have been sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. OMB review is the final step in the federal rulemaking process before a proposed rule is published for public review and comment.
OMB's review typically takes several weeks, especially when the proposal makes extensive changes to the current regulations. According to this blog post from Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, the proposed rule addresses the Obama administration’s concern that the “rules governing who is eligible for overtime have eroded over the years.”
SHRM chairs the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity (PPWO), a group of nearly 50 employer organizations and companies that is organizing the employer community’s response to the proposed overtime rule changes. In its capacity as chair of PPWO and as a representative of the HR profession, SHRM is seeking to meet with the OMB to express employer concerns about the impact that changes to the duties test and salary level could have on the workplace.
SHRM will continue to keep SHRM members informed of progress on changes to the rule and the review and comment process.
