Federal Spotlight: Take Action on DOL Overtime Rule

July 28, 2016

ABI’s federal partner, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) is encouraging members to Take Action if you would like to see Congress act on the Department of Labor’s (DOL) overtime rule. The legislation will require the DOL to rework and further review the impact the rule will have on employees, businesses and the economy. According to the NAM, “The Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act, introduced by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) and Representative Tim Walberg (R-MI), is critical to fighting the dramatic and unprecedented change in overtime pay requirements from DOL. Let Congress know DOL’s overtime rule is too much too soon and reduces manufacturers’ ability to adjust their pay and benefits to fit local cost-of-living thresholds.”
