The Department of Labor posted its anticipated Request for Information on the 2016 overtime rule. In its post, the DOL stated that it will publish the RFI in the Federal Register tomorrow, July 26. The RFI represents a preliminary step in the rulemaking process to revise the federal overtime rules set by the Obama administration. The RFI seeks comments on whether and how the DOL should set salary minimums, whether the regulations should contain multiple salary levels, and the impacts of the 2016 rule.
Stakeholders have 60 days from publication to submit comments.
