SHRM Advocacy Team member and SHRM Labor Relations Special
Expertise Panel member Christine Walters testified on June 23 before the House Small Business
Committee on how changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime
regulations will impact employers and employees. Walters is the fourth SHRM
witness to testify on the overtime rule this year!
Walters (pictured at right with
Representative Steve Chabot of Ohio, who chairs the committee) testified
at the hearing on how changes to the FLSA overtime regulations are
expected to impact her small-business clients, including nonprofits, as
well as employees. In addition, she expressed SHRM’s
concerns with the final overtime rule, suggesting that the salary
threshold increase of 100 percent is too high and too fast. SHRM continues to
support an increase to the salary threshold, but an increase similar to
previous updates that takes into account industry and regional differences.
SHRM continues to be the voice of HR on this critical
workplace issue. More than 100 SHRM members advocated on the overtime rule
while visiting congressional offices to explain our 21st Century Workplace
Principles during the SHRM 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition,
held in Washington, D.C., June 19-22. In addition, SHRM chairs the Partnership to Protect
Workplace Opportunity, made up of more than 85 official members
including business organizations, colleges and universities, nonprofits, state
and local governments, and others opposed to the final overtime rule.
