Advocacy Roundtable on Overtime Rule

March 20, 2019

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy will hold three small-business roundtables on the new Department of Labor (DOL) proposed rule which would increase the threshold for the “white collar” overtime exemption.

On March 7, DOL published its proposal to increase the salary threshold for overtime eligibility under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to $35,308 a year ($455 to $679 per week). The proposal does not include automatic adjustments nor does it make any changes to the duties test — options that were previously under consideration.

The Office of Advocacy regularly holds roundtables to garner small-business input on a variety of issues, and these regional roundtables will provide a wide array of stakeholder input to Advocacy as they work to help regulators understand the small-business impact.

Below are the dates and locations of the roundtables:

Tampa, Florida | Thursday April 4, 2019
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm (EDT)

Washington, DC | Thursday April 11, 2019
