Congressional Subcommittee Seeks to Block New DOL Overtime Rule

The House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections has introduced a bill which would delay the effective date for the DOL’s new overtime rule from December 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017. The Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits Act (H.R. 6094), is sponsored almost entirely by Republicans and does not propose material changes to the DOL overtime rule or challenge the substantive provisions of the rule.  Instead, it solely seeks to delay the effective date of the new rule by six months.  We will continue to monitor H.R. 6094’s progress.  In the interim, more information about H.R. 6094 can be found here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/6094
