While SHRM supports an increase to the salary threshold, a 100 percent increase in one year is simply too far and too fast. That is why SHRM supports multiple legislative efforts to address the recently announced Department of Labor overtime rule in ways that benefit employers and employees, including legislation (H.R. 5813) titled the Overtime Reform and Enhancement Act championed by Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Oregon), pictured here with SHRM President and CEO Hank Jackson during the Democratic Presidential Convention in Philadelphia.
SHRM supports Congressman Schrader's reasonable legislation because it would gradually phase-in DOL's final overtime rule over three years, starting with a salary threshold increase to approximately $35,984 on December 1, 2016. The additional increases would occur in December 2017, 2018 and 2019. Most importantly, the bill would prohibit the final rule's automatic increases to the salary threshold every three years. Future increases would need to be proposed through the traditional regulatory process of notice and comment.
Please take a moment to click HERE and send your Member of Congress a personalized e-mail requesting that he or she cosponsor this important legislation!
In an effort to show your support, please remember to meet locally with your representative this month while legislators are back home for congressional recess in an effort to increase cosponsors for the Rep. Schrader legislation. Members of the U.S. House and Senate are currently visiting their districts and states through Labor Day. HR professionals—specifically SHRM A-Team members—should take advantage of this opportunity to directly connect with lawmakers on this timely issue.
Stay tuned as SHRM continues to focus on legislative efforts to provide relief from the FLSA overtime rule! Read more about these efforts at advocacy.shrm.org/overtime.
