ISSA Submits Comments on Federal Overtime Regulations

October 10, 2017

In late September, ISSA signed on to comments submitted in response to the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) request for information on the disposition of the overtime regulations and the salary threshold that helps define which workers are eligible for overtime pay. The comments were submitted by the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity (PPWO), a business coalition of which ISSA is an active member.

In the comments submitted to DOL, ISSA and the PPWO recommended that the Department adopt a lower level national salary threshold that has been adjusted to minimize small business impacts to low wage regions and industries. ISSA and PPWO commented that most small businesses do not support multiple standard salary levels, as this may cause confusion and complexity to the regulatory process.

ISSA thanks the many member companies that provided their feedback which helped form the basis for these comments submitted to the DOL. To view the comments in their entirety, please click here.
