CLASP Statement for the Record on the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections Hearing: “Bad for Business: DOL’s Proposed Overtime Rule”

By Sapna Mehta

On September 8, 2023, the Department of Labor (DOL) published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), Defining and Delimiting the Exemptions for Executive, Administrative, Professional, Outside Sales, and Computer Employees. The NPRM proposes to update and revise the regulations issued under section 13(a)(1) of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which provide an exemption from minimum wage and overtime pay requirements for executive, administrative, and professional employees.

CLASP strongly supports the DOL’s proposed rule to update and revise these regulations.
