Public Comment on Department of Labor on proposed rule “Defining and Delimiting the Exemptions for Executive, Administrative, Professional, Outside Sales, and Computer Employees”
On November 7th, CLASP submitted a comment in strong favor of the Department of Labor’s proposed rule to update the salary threshold for overtime protections.
The FLSA ensures overtime protection for most hourly workers, but eligibility for salaried workers depends on their pay and job type. The current salary threshold for hourly workers is too low, and has not kept pace with inflation. CLASP supports raising the salary threshold.
