On Wednesday, Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez told a House committee that he hoped the Department’s proposed revisions to the white-collar overtime regulations would be published this Spring.

During a hearing of the House Education and Workforce Committee in which the topic was the President’s FY2016 budget request for the Department of Labor, Secretary Perez explained that the Department was “working overtime” on the proposal.  He provided no further specifics on the proposed rule’s timing, other than a hope that the proposal would be completed in the coming months.
