doug for news.jpgThe Labor Department’s final rule on overtime eligibility isn’t likely to appear before late 2016, Solicitor of Labor Patricia Smith said at a recent panel discussion.  Speaking at the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law conference in Philadelphia on Thursday, Smith said the lengthy time needed to finish drafting the regulation was due to the volume of comments and the complex nature of the change.  According to others on the panel, there were gasps from the audience with her announcement. 

 

In her capacity as the Solicitor of Labor, Ms. Smith and her team do assist in the development of regulations, standards and legislative proposals, and provide legal opinions and advice concerning all the Department's activities. In other words, while she wouldn't make the final decision on implementation, she's definitely a credible source who is part of that team.

 

One potential negative side effect of a late publication date of the final rule is that the time between that date and implementation by employers may be cut short.   CAI is currently putting together a webinar to review the proposed rules, implications for employers, and steps to take now to get ready.  We're hoping to offer the webinar in mid-December 2015.  Look for more information in the coming weeks.
