AAU, Associations Submit Comments on Labor Department Overtime Rule

AAU joined CUPA-HR-led comments in response to the Labor Department’s proposed overtime rule, which formally rescinds the Department’s 2016 rule. The rule, published in March 2019, would increase the annual salary threshold that determines which employees qualify for overtime pay from $455 to $679 per week (equivalent to $35,308 per year). The comments agree that updates to the rule are necessary, and ask the department to: allow employers to prorate the threshold for part-time employees, count the cost of employer-provided room and board toward the salary threshold, and to update the regulations every five to seven years based on circumstance and not on a rigid schedule, using a methodology established in 2004.
