  • Beyer Commends Finalized Department of Labor Overtime Rule

    May 18, 2016 (Washington, DC) – The Department of Labor (DOL) today issued its final ruling to adjust eligibility for overtime labor among salaried workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Congressman Beyer welcomed the DOL’s expansion of overtime protections, which will give an estimated 4 million workers a raise in pay.

    “Today’s announcement by DOL will greatly expand earning power for working families,” said Rep. Don Beyer. “These updates to existing overtime regulations will help to grow and strengthen the middle class, and achieve increases in health, productivity, and work-life balance of American workers.”

    The DOL rule on overtime will also mandate automatic updates to the threshold for determining overtime eligibility, previously updates only once in the last four decades.
